Cauleen Smith – In Space, In Time

Since the early 1990s, Cauleen Smith has created over two dozen short films and videos that move between genres and media with remarkable fluidity and self-assuredness. Each short film can be seen as a brief chapter in the artist’s larger project: an ongoing weave of concerns expressed in her own unmistakable voice. Ranging from radical Black art and activism, feminist resistance and Black history, the character of urban environments, and her most personal thoughts and fantasies, Smith alternates between public and private discourse. Evident throughout is her singular spontaneity, irreverent wit, and gift for creating haunting metaphors. With thanks to Cauleen Smith and Steve Anker, who first curated this retrospective for the Pacific Film Archive earlier this year.
