Outside Society is the first single-CD collection to span Patti Smith’s entire body of recorded material. The LP is a compelation of her signature songs on the Arista and Columbia labels. The 18-track release is chronologically arranged, from 1975-2007.

Smith also has an art exhibit which opened last week in NYC called  9.11 Babelogue. Smith’s work will be  on view from September 8-December 3, 2011. The show is a response to the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001. The artist’s tribute “does not align the Twin Towers with one nation, religion, or race, but instead offers them as symbols of the universal resiliency of the human spirit.” The “9.11” series was created between 2001 and 2002 and will be shown for the first time in its entirety at the Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Art Gallery.

Patti Smith a FAULT Favourite and one to watch in 2011.
