Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here
Suzanne Lacy is a pioneer of socially engaged art and public practice, promoting dialogue and collaborations with communities--artists, activists, organizations, schools--throughout her prolific career. Co-presented by SFMOMA and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here is the first retrospective of the Los Angeles–based artist. At SFMOMA, visitors can explore Lacy's entire career, from her earliest feminist work to her latest immersive video installations. The YBCA presentation offers a new, experimental approach to authorship and participation, revisiting key collaborative projects through the lens of today. This includes an in-depth focus on The Oakland Projects (1991–2001), a series on youth empowerment, media education and policy. Both venues will host live activations in the galleries and a vibrant range of public programs.
