What is Socially Engaged Practice?
by Suzanne Lacy

ASU Art Museum Forkosh Hirshman Art and Society Lecture

Monday, March 4, 6:30 p.m., Neeb Hall

Suzanne Lacy, an internationally known artist whose work includes installations, video and large-scale performances on social themes and urban issues, will address the question "What is socially engaged practice?" in a free lecture at Arizona State University.
Responding to the ASU Art Museum’s history in presenting social practice art, Lacy will show and discuss new projects taking place in Columbia, Bristol, Korea and Madrid, exploring topics that include violence against women, working class issues, and feminist political work interfacing with public policy.
This free lecture is sponsored by the ASU Art Museum's Forkosh Hirshman Art and Society lecture series, developed by Valley residents Linda Hirshman and the late David Forkosh to foster dialogue about cultural and social issues. Organized in partnership with the Socially Engaged Practice Initiative and the School of Art, both in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at ASU.
While she is at ASU, Lacy will also lead a workshop for graduate students at the ASU Art Museum and meet with the Socially Engaged Practice faculty and staff group.

About the artist:
Lacy began her own art practice in the early 1970s while a student at University of California, Fresno, and then in the Feminist Art Program at California Institute for the Arts. While in school, she was deeply influenced by the Vietnam War protests, the Black Power Movement, and the Farm Workers Strikes, and became interested in how to raise awareness for issues and engage people in creative solutions through social practice art.
Lacy is currently the chair of the Graduate Program in Public Practice at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, and, as an artist, educator, theorist of socially engaged public art and author, she prepares students to re-invent traditional media-specific ways of thinking about art making. She has been the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Lila Wallace Arts International Fellowship and several from the National Endowment for the Arts. She also received the inaugural Public Art Dialogue Annual Award in 2009, the Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement from the College Art Association in 2010, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Women’s Caucus for Art in 2012.
Also well known as a writer, Lacy edited the influential Mapping the Terrain: New Genre Public Art and the recently released Leaving Art: Writings on Performance, Politics and Publics, 1974-2007, which the New York Times describes as “a moving and feisty document of a committed life, one that students of the art of our time will be grateful for in the years ahead.”
