Statement: Selecting a Cast


Casey Smallwood was born in Springfield, Missouri in 1981.  She earned a BFA in Photography from Missouri State University (2005) and an MFA in Contemporary Art Practice and Theory from the University of Chicago (2008).  Smallwood’s work uses a process of reenactment and recontextualization of found narratives from mass culture to create moments of crisis centered around the interplay of self-awareness and self-deception in everyday intimacies.  Her work is as much what people see or participate in as it is the things that went into the making of that experience; it's the directing and performance of the piece as much as it is the final product.  Smallwood has exhibited nationally including the College Art Association’sARTSpace Media Lounge, New York City (2011), Angel's Gate Cultural Center, San Diego (2012), Ohio University Art Gallery (2010), Eel Space, Chicago (2009), Lumpen’s Version 9 Festival, Chicago (2010), DOVA Temporary Gallery, Chicago (2008). Smallwood lives and works in Chicago, Illinois.
