Boca Raton Museum of Art
Over the past 35 years Michael Smith has chronicled the life of his alter-ego “Mike,” the quintessential Everyman, in live performances, video, photography, drawings, and installations in museums and festivals around the world. Smith’s tragicomic character traverses the pitfalls of contemporary life in America, never quite understanding the trends he tries to follow or what exactly is happening to him. Smith’s exhibition looks at aging from “Mike’s” perspective. It includes a tableau with a lonely disco ball documenting all the years of his life since 1951; photographs taken on his trip to the Fountain of Youth Archeological Park in St. Augustine, Florida; and a trip to KidZania where children can step into adult roles.
Smith’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as well as many other international venues. He recently created a tattoo studio serving clients over 65 for the prestigious once-in-a decade exhibition, Munster Sculpture Project.
