British-born artist Melanie Smith has long called Mexico City home, and it’s Mexico that informs her multimedia works, from installations to video and painting. And although she’s not among the artists taking part in Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place, which opens in February at the Denver Art Museum, that alone makes her point of view relevant as a prelude to the exhibit. She’s also fascinating, making her a not-to-miss participant in the DAM’s Logan Lecture series. Hear Smith speak on her work and the effect of physical place on Latin-American modernism beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25, in Sharp Auditorium at the Denver Art Museum’s Frederic C. Hamilton Building, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway. A free meet-the-artist reception follows nearby at The Art, a Hotel. For information and tickets, $8 to $18, visit denverartmuseum.org.
