Campus: Tempe           
Cost: Free

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. Lacy is chair of the graduate program in Public Practice at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles and editor of 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.”
 
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.
