Gallery Lulo is excited to present a series of photographic prints and collection of jewelry by acclaimed artist Mickey Smith. More to come here on the upcoming show with Lulo.

Mickey Smith (US/NZ) is a conceptual artist living in New Zealand. As a photographer, her practice has been engaged with a longstanding inquiry into libraries, books and archives — in particular the social significance of their physical existence or disappearance.

Mickey has exhibited throughout the United States, in China, Russia and New Zealand. Her works are held in numerous public and private collections, including the Museum of Modern Art Library, Sheldon Museum of Art and Weisman Art Museum. She has received awards from the McKnight Foundation, CEC ArtsLink, Americans for the Arts and Creative New Zealand.

Her first artist’s book, Denudation, published by Hassla, was included in the photo book installation, A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial in 2012. In 2018, Te Tuhi published her work As You Will... Carnegie Libraries of the South Pacific, a book focused on the 25 Carnegie libraries erected in New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji.

Mickey holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Photography from Minnesota State University Moorhead (1994) and a Diploma in Jewellery Design from Hungry Creek Art & Craft School in New Zealand (2019).
