"In the current exhibition, Set Dressing, Smith hones her ability to direct a deeply feminist, materialist look at the way history is 'made' -- for the sake of critically queering the world (to come). She makes us astutely aware that the way we handle the past speaks volumes about the way we (will) handle one another, now and in the future." -- Nicole Archer, exhibition catalog
