Nick Smith - Pioneers

Rhodes Contemporary Art presents 'Pioneers', a solo exhibition by Nick Smith that examines the American canon of art and cultural heritage through a personal lens of word-colour associations.

The exhibition will feature a new series of works Nick Smith created during lockdown, from his small village of Crinan. Thematically, the exhibition explores and remasters canonised North American art and culture, from Grant Wood, Edward Hopper and Chuck Close to The Simpsons. It is a celebration of iconic American art and design, and how a simple bottle of Coca-Cola has intertwined with art, design history and culture.
