Maiden & Moonflower:Art21 lets us know that Kiki Smith has just produced a collection of hand-screened wallpaper for part of her new exhibition, Kiki Smith: Her Home. According to Art21, “Her Home spans a woman’s life from birth to death. Using domestic existence as a starting point, Kiki Smith revisits her own history rooted in protestant New England.” No word if there are temporary tattoos available.
Paydirt:Mel Chin, who completed a residency at the Walker in 1991, has a lengthy twopart interview up on Art21.

The design evolved in response to the lessons of each RP generation.”
