Artists Index: Bob & Roberta Smith

Bob and Roberta Smith (b. 1963, London. Lives and works in London)
Bob and Roberta Smith is a pseudonym for British contemporary artist Patrick Brill, based in London. Exploring the relationship between humour, politics and society the artist consistently questions the viewer’s approach of their everyday environment, using the languages of folk, punk and alternative protest movements to demolish established values and authorities. He recently initiated the Art Party Conference in Scarborough - the Art Party is not aligned with any political party but celebrates art and artists, and acts as a forum for debating the future of the arts and education, aiming to influence politicians and decision makers.
