UN PASO MÁS ALLÁ EN EL NOBLE ARTE DE LA CONVERSACIÓN.
El día 19 de octubre de 2013 en la ciudad de Nueva York Suzanne, que no pierde la energía ha organizado una buena… hablar, hablar, opinar, conversar…
This fall, Creative Time and the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum will present Between the Door and the Street, a major work by the internationally celebrated artist Suzanne Lacy, perhaps the most important socially-engaged artist working today. On October 19, some 300 women and a few men–all selected to represent a cross-section of ages, backgrounds, and perspectives–will gather on the stoops along a residential street in Brooklyn, where they will engage in unscripted conversations about a variety of issues related to gender politics today. Wander among the groups, listen to what they are saying, and form your own opinions!
Between the Door and the Street grew out of a series of deep and wide-ranging conversations between Lacy and a group of activist women, held over the course of five months. Lacy considers this preparatory work to be a key part of the project as a whole, and their ideas, expertise, and principles have informed the project.
This project builds on Lacy’s rich body of work devoted to issues of feminism, including Silver Action, presented at Tate Modern, London, earlier this year; The Tattooed Skeleton, at the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, in 2010; and Cleaning Conditions, part of the Do It exhibition at the Manchester Art Gallery, in summer 2013. This is her first public project in New York City.
