Mike Smith

Mike Smith is a performance and video installation artist whose work was most recently included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and is the subject of the career survey Mike’s World. In the 1970s Smith created the persona “Mike” which he describes as “the human equivalent of a supermarket generic brand.” Smith’s work reveals great truths in its bland presentation of the “everyman” as seen in this Tuesday Evenings presentation, A Night with Mike.
