Strange Messenger: The Work of Patti Smith
John William Smith
Andy Warhol Museum, 2002 - Art - 79 pages
Impossible to categorize, moving easily between the literary, art and musical worlds, always unpredictable and impassioned, idiosyncratic musician and artist Patti Smith here presents an impressive body of visual art, mostly works on paper. Bringing together approximately 60 works spanning the past 30 years, "Strange Messenger" collects early pieces as well as new ones inspired by the September 11, 2001, bombing of the World Trade Center, in which Smith expresses her views about violence, religion, war and intolerance. This book marks the first occasion that Smith's drawings have been brought together in a single volume, as well as the first publication of most of the included works.
