About Us / Contact Us
As publishers of artists’ books, monographs, catalogues, and other art ephemera, Smart Art Press is modeled on New York artist/theorist Dick Higgins’ Something Else Press of the sixties, publishing an eclectic and eccentric mix of works by and about artists, as well as related literary endeavors that seek to vitalize the scene and expand the understanding of contemporary art and culture. – Tom Patchett
That was our mission as written in 1994 when we began and it remains central to our publishing to this day.
We’ve published over a hundred books and catalogs plus many other wonderful oddities from films to bumper stickers. The press is the wing and thigh of Track 16 in Culver City, though the press is far from limited to just covering the gallery’s endeavors.
The gallery has moved from it's long time location at Bergamot Station to a space in Hayden Tract of Culver City. Along with the change of venue, we've also had a change in format. We are now open by appointment.
