Aimée Duvivier was among the few women selected to show their work at official exhibitions organized by the French Academy in the late 1700s. Coming from a family of artists, she may have also studied with Jacques-Louis David. The flat, unadorned background, the subdued palette of blue and gray with just a dash of red, the casual pose, and the restrained handling of paint are characteristic of the neoclassical formula that David popularized during the period of the French Revolution.

Walker entirely of plastic hair combs. Born Sarah Breedlove in 1867, shortly after the end of slavery, Madam Walker is said to be the nation’s first self-made female millionaire. Orphaned as a child and widowed with a daughter at twenty, Walker earned her fortune and fame by building a prosperous beauty empire. As a businesswoman, she employed thousands of African American women who would have otherwise been relegated to low-paying jobs. Walker flourished as an entrepreneur despite the odds, before women’s suffrage and long before the civil rights movement. Her life is captured in her famous statement: “I am a woman from the cotton fields of the South. I was promoted to the washtub. I was promoted to the kitchen. I promoted myself to the business of hair . . . on my own ground.” “I used 3,840 fine-toothed pocket combs to assemble this image of Walker, based on a photo taken around the start of her career,” Clark commented recently. “Combs speak to Walker’s career as a pioneer of hair care. I also used them because they capture our national legacy of hair culture, and the gender and race politics of hair. As disposable objects, they parallel the low social status of African American women born in the late 1800s. But together, the thousands of combs become a monumental tapestry, signifying Walker’s magnitude and success despite her humble beginnings.”", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Purchase through the generosity of Marilyn D.

I decided to work with Freddie Mercury and David Bowie’s 1981 duet, “Under Pressure.” The title here alludes to the many kinds of pressure I’m under in the course of this project: time pressure, social pressure, creative pressure, and even cabin pressure. I’ve always loved the song for its arc, which starts very terse and controlled, moves to a middle section where the emotions spill over, and then ends with the song reining itself in again. I think of the interaction between the characters in my video as a lovers’ quarrel, with one character acting distant and cold as the other one begs to be given one more chance."

In his best-known works, Smith assumes the role of his performance persona “Mike,” a wide-eyed, and somewhat inept everyman figure. Curator Annette DiMeo Carlozzi, who organized a major show of Smith’s work at the Blanton in 2007, has described the character “Mike” as “a kind of ever-hopeful Candide, adrift in a world of rapid technological advances that he seems incapable of fully comprehending, and stymied by the depersonalization and isolation that have accompanied late twentieth-century life. Ironic in its sharp personification of failure, its also stop-you-in-your-tracks hilarious and poignant, too.” Smith’s "Sears Class Portraits" blur the line between Smith, the professor and artist, and the theatrical persona of “Mike.” The artist has stated that he tries “to deal with clichés through Mike,” and for this series he adopts the timeworn vocabulary of the class portrait. The portraits are an ongoing project, begun at UT Austin in 1999. Each semester, Smith takes his class to a portrait studio to have a group photo taken. “I ask them to wear their Sunday’s best; however, if this is too difficult for them to manage, they are welcome to wear their normal everyday attire.” Students smile, while Smith adopts the facial expression of “Mike”: his closed mouth is upturned in a half smile and his eyebrows are raised in what appears to be a mood of both pride and comical self-resignation. The "Sears Class Portraits" series currently comprises seventy such photographs, showing hundreds of college-aged students with Smith positioned “Where’s Waldo”-like among them, against stock portrait studio backdrops. Photographic technology visibly advances, backgrounds vary, and Smith continues to grow older, but the students stay the same age. The work underscores the realities of aging and the passage of time, both in the transition from analog to digital photography and the changes in retail that have put many companies out of business over the past decades: following the recent widespread closure of Sears stores, Smith moved on to Picture People, until they closed. He currently takes his students to J.C. Penney for their class portraits.
