Fleisher/Ollman is pleased to present works by Kambel Smith (b. 1986, lives and works in Philadelphia), who makes large-scale, sculptural re-creations of iconic architecture with enthusiastic attention to detail. The exhibition will include four Philadelphia landmarks spanning the Delaware to the Schuylkill: the Ben Franklin Bridge, Independence Hall, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Kambel Smith has had one-person exhibitions at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Atlanta, GA; Elaine de Kooning House, East Hampton, NY; the 2019 Outsider Art Fair (presented by Chris Byrne), New York, NY; and his work is currently on view in Kambel Smith: New Work at Marlborough, New York – Downtown (through November 12). Smith has been included in group exhibitions at Marlborough, London; and the Brooklyn Print & Photo Fair, Brooklyn, NY, in the presentation One Day You’ll See: A History of Afrofuturism, curated by Brian Chidester.
Kambel Smith: Philadelphia is presented in collaboration with Chris Byrne and Marlborough.
