Abigail Smithson


Abigail Smithson is a multi-media art living and working in Baton Rouge, LA. With focus on documentation, her work engages themes  related to fragility embedded in social issues, including white privilege and gun violence.   

Her practice is rooted in the need to engage her community, interact with people who she lives around and re-contextualize found materials that she feels having meaning beyond their intended purpose.  Born and raised in California, Smithson received her BA from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2010 and received her MFA from Louisiana State University earlier this summer.
