Bruno Smith is a Mexican-American artist who lives and works in New York City. Smith’s work investigates the production and display of culture and identity, from the clothes we wear to the objects we present in museums. He is primarily concerned with the politically charged history of the colonization of the Americas and the impact of its legacy on the LatinX community. Since receiving his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Smith’s work has been exhibited nationally, including the 2010 and 2012 editions of the Bruce High-Quality Foundation’s ​Brucennial​.
