On June 9th, Emily Mae Smith and Contemporary Fine Arts have debuted their first exhibition together called Feast of Totems. Held in Berlin, the show will include new paintings that "occupy and distort art historical compositions, claiming space for feminine subjectivity". Emily's distinctive style and recurring characters such as the broom avatar are "a kind of totem: an object imbued with a special power beyond its literal form. Always contemplative, the broom alludes in turn to a paintbrush, a phallic symbol, a siren, an invisible laborer, and a mischievous interloper. These brooms are tools for new potentialities".

Feast of Totems is on view from June 9-July 14 at Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin.
