Published by Sming Sming Books in conjunction with Sable Elyse Smith: and then the street lights--like a warning bell at Assembly (Recess) in Brooklyn, Sable Elyse Smith's LANDSCAPES & PLAYGROUNDS trains its attention on the significance on two sites of fantasy: the landscape and the playground. Smith considers these sites as they relate specifically to prison environments, where landscape murals typically adorn visiting room walls, vast swaths of land often serve as a background to the campuses, and the contentious interior spaces give rise to complex emotional landscapes for those imbricated in the system.
Using both essayistic and diaristic lenses, the text turns an intimate eye on the interior, the body, and the layered relationship between a father and daughter.

The accompanying catalog for the New Museum’s exhibition Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon investigates gender’s place in contemporary art and culture at a moment of political upheaval and renewed culture wars. The exhibition features over 40 artists working across a variety of mediums and genres, including film, video, performance, painting and sculpture. Many embrace explicit pleasure and visual lushness as political strategies, and some deliberately reject or complicate overt representation, turning to poetic language, docufiction and abstraction to affirm ambiguities and reflect shifting physical embodiment. Among the artists included are Morgan Bassichis, Nayland Blake, Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Vaginal Davis, ektor garcia, House of Ladosha, Candice Lin, Christina Quarles, Tschabalala Self, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Sable Elyse Smith and Wu Tsang.
Published by The Studio Museum in Harlem. This catalogue accompanies the 2017-2018 exhibition Fictions at The Studio Museum in Harlem. Fictions is a survey of recent work by nineteen emerging artists of African and Latin American decent who live and work across the United States. They draw inspiration from diverse sources - such as childhood memories, current and historic events, and the body - often creating parallel or alternate narratives that complicate fact, fiction, and memory.
