Shanice Smith

Residency: August through September 2019

Shanice Smith, born in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, identifies as an interdisciplinary artist whose mixed-media pieces use deceptively delicate or beautiful aesthetics to deconstruct and examine domestic violence and the objectification and commodification of women, with an emphasis on Caribbean women of color. Smith also pulls from her own personal, traumatic experiences along with those of her mother to build a solid foundation for discussions in an attempt to inspire others to speak up about their experiences; as Audre Lorde said, “your silence will not protect you.”
