Mimi Smith, an early pioneer in clothing, feminist, and installation art began making sculpture in the form of clothing in 1965 not as garments to be worn but as sculpture, installations and visual objects about woman’s lives. Over the years her art has continued to examine clothing as both form and subject, while also exploring the subjects of women, child abuse, television, war, nuclear issues, the environment, and AIDS. In recent years her work has also focused on illness and aging. In addition to clothing sculpture she has used other mediums from paintings and paper and knotted thread and tape measure drawings, to sound, computers, artists’ books, and clocks.
