At David B. Smith, upping the game for contemporary art in Denver
March 1, 2015

Constructed Histories, curated by William Morrow, is called “as good as any contemporary show you might see at the Denver Art Museum these days. Maybe even better…” The exhibition includes work by Sanford Biggers, Jeremy Dean, Tania Dibbs, Teresa Diehl, Christoph Draeger, Glenn Kaino, Dinh Q. Lé, McCallum Tarry, and Aaron Skolnick.

Rinaldi states “There is plenty of questioning of American identity and presumption in ‘Constructed Histories’… there’s an opening for galleries like David B. Smith to emerge as distinct voices with an important role in keeping Denver interesting, actually upping the culture here. And for fans of contemporary art, to explore new places eager to bring them art that is relevant to our era. They can start right now at David B. Smith.”
