Suzanne Lacy

Suzanne Lacy

Suzanne Lacy (born 1945) is an internationally known artist whose work includes installations, video, and large-scale performances on social themes and urban issues. One of her best-known works to date is The Crystal Quilt (Minneapolis, 1987) a performance with 430 older women, broadcast live on Public Television.

In 1977 her performance piece "Three Weeks in May" highlighted issues relating to rape and rape prevention.

During the nineties she worked with teams of artists and youth to create an ambitious series of performances, workshops, and installations on youth and public policy, documented by videos, local and national news broadcasts, and an NBC program. Her work has been funded through numerous local and national foundations, including the National Endowment for the Arts and The Guggenheim Museum, Rockefeller, Surdna, and Nathan Cummings Foundations.

Also known for her writing, Lacy edited the influential "Mapping the Terrain: New Genre Public Art", published in 1995 by Bay Press, a book that prefigures current writing on politically relevant performance art. She has published over 60 articles on public art.

Lacy served as Chair of Fine Arts at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles from 2002-2006. In 2007 she launched a new MFA in Public Practice graduate program for Otis.

From 1987-97 she was Dean of the School of Fine Arts at the California College of the Arts, and in 1998 she became Founding Director of the Center for Art and Public Life. In 1996-7 she co-founded the Visual and Public Art Institute at California State University at Monterey Bay with artist Judith Baca. In the late 1970s, Lacy started the performance program at the Woman's Building in Los Angeles.

Active in Oakland cultural politics, Lacy was a member of Mayor Jerry Brown’s education cabinet and an Arts Commissioner for the City of Oakland.
