against narratives of necessity

http://youtube.com/user/DeAndreSmithREVO is a 2014 sculpture installation by amerikkkan artist DeAndre Smith. The sculpture is individually recreated in one of several different forms each time the viewer requests to see it by entering appropriate search terms into the multinational corporation Google’s popular web search engine. In each Google search he applied a different system of change to each of twenty-four possible combinations of results divided into four types , each containing one of the four basic types of lines Smith used (anti-policing, black liberationist, insurrectionary, and counter-hegemonic). The result is four possible permutations for each of the twenty-four original searches.

Smith has been the subject of hundreds of solo exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world since 1965. For more on DeAndre Smith and his work, we’ve compiled recordings of the artist in conversation with members of the media below.
