Cherise Smith Obituary, Death – Cherise Smith is currently the Joseph D. Jamail Chair in African American Studies in the Department of African & African Diaspora Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, where she is also linked with the Department of Art History. Smith is a professor of English and African American studies at the same time. Her principal scholarly interests are in contemporary art, performance art, photography history, and the work of African Americans and other African-American artists.
Smith earned her doctorate at Stanford University, where she worked with Drs. Wanda Corn and Pamela Lee on her research. Smith went on to earn a doctorate. Smith began his career as a Residence Scholar at the Getty Research Institute’s African American Art Research Initiative the previous academic year. Her study was titled “Healing Old Wounds,” and it looked into how modern artists Carrie Mae Weems, Charles Gaines, Rodney McMillian, and Cauleen Smith use appropriation and conceptualism to explore traumatic events in the United States’ past.
In the year 2020, the University of Texas Press will publish her book, Michael Ray Charles: Studies in Blackness. She is the book’s author. The author of this book received the Charles C. Eldredge Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in American Art from the Smithsonian American Art Museum. This book examines the artist’s work in the context of the 1990s, the surge in collecting Black “memorabilia,” the issues posed by art censorship, Pop art, and other historical events.
Enacting Others: Politics of Identity in Eleanor Antin, Nikki S. Lee, Adrian Piper, and Anna Deavere Smith (Duke University Press, 2011) investigates how identity is negotiated in performance art in which female artists adopt the characteristics and mannerisms of a racial, ethnic, and gender “other.” Eleanor Antin, Nikki S. Lee, Adrian Piper, and Anna Deavere Smith are among the artists in question.
Some of the artists at issue are Eleanor Antin, Nikki S. Lee, Adrian Piper, and Anna Deavere Smith. She has had work published in a number of journals, including Art Journal, American Art, and Expose, among others.
