RE-PLACED

A PORTRAIT SHOW - but recycled.


Gardenville Station, San Francisco CA

October 4th-6th

Re-Placed is an exhibition showcasing the truth: how we humans choose to treat waste is no different than how we treat our people.

THE CONCEPT

The artist, David Aaron Smith, lives his life around reclaiming material.  The extreme waste of living a conventional American life forced Aaron into a remote area of Death Valley where he's been working with the byproducts of consumer lifestyle. It's become a daily practice for Aaron to observe how the systems in place facilitating human life dictate the choices you have.  

When the opportunity presented itself to project this personal outlook onto the big stage of San Francisco, Aaron's brain started churning.  What he wants is to create something that is San Francisco, from concept to materials.  

On September 26th, Aaron arrives in San Francisco with a small team to build 10 to 12 life-size assemblage canvases from reclaimed materials from the streets of San Francisco.  Aaron will then take 10-12 San Francisco residents who are dealing with displacement; from those looking for solutions to the housing crisis, to those providing relief, those scrambling for footing, and those managing the material debris that follows displacement.

The result is a multi-media portrait show that tells the story of San Francisco's present.  In another facet, it comments on the way cities build systems for dealing with societal byproducts that are not always empathetic.  

There's an additional dimension of charity to the show.  A portion of the sales will be donated to a non-profit working against displacement of the sitter's choosing.

  • David Aaron Smith

The Ever-Evolving Museum

Updated: Aug 1, 2019

David Aaron Smith's main project is Villa Anita DV, a live-in museum of artwork, jewelry, and furniture that pushes beyond the notion of art as lifestyle to arrive at art as living space. The sprawling labyrinth built by Smith, along with fellow artists Carlo Roncancio, Jack Holloman, and Katelyn Doherty, is an evolving art installation that could also be seen as a 7-year art performance.


Through the extreme weather produced at the southern tip of Death Valley National Park, these four artists pound away at their expansion while hosting visitors to their peculiar museum. Not only do the visitors become integral parts of the performance, but they become seed carriers that carry the message of these four artists to different parts of the world.
