Zak Smith’s latest solo exhibition at Fredericks & Freiser gallery opens this Friday, October 10. From the press release:
Midnight in the Empire features compulsively dense abstract works, a grab bag of drawings and paintings on different subjects, as well as the latest installments of “Girls In The Naked Girl Business”–Smith’s ongoing series of portraits of acquaintances and friends in the sex industry. The exhibition also includes “Drawings I Did Around The Time I Became A Porn Star”—a sprawling autobiographical series of sketches recording Smith’s days and nights working as “male talent” in the adult film industry. In Spring 2009, Tin House Books will publish this wall-size work under the title We Made Porn along with 300 pages of Smith’s written observations on those experiences.
The back gallery will display two of Smith’s ongoing collaborations with artists Nicholas Di Genova, Shawn Cheng, Sean McCarthy, John Mejias, Craig Taylor, and Matt Wiegle.
