Suzanne Lacy Characteristics
Suzanne Lacy is unique in drawing the world into collaboration with her work while maintaining an additional vision. Although art is often conceived and realized as a private act, in Lacy's work the performance becomes a frame in which many people create personal expressions in relationship to a common issue. A pioneer in socially interactive, feminist, public art, Lacy's large scale performances have, since the mid-70s, engaged mass audiences through media and complicated community organizing.
