Praise

“Putting together a retrospective of the author’s abundant output is a daunting task, as the remnants from her numerous pieces—images, text, her own critical writing—often fail to capture the breadth and depth of what transpired. The sweeping catalogue accompanying the two-part show at SFMoMA and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is a complement to that difficult labor. Edited by the curators, it also features their essays and nearly two hundred pages for an illustrated survey with some four-hundred archival images from eighty-four works, all broken down into seven categories. But my favorite part comes near the end, with a long list of Lacy’s consciousness-raising “collaborators, participants and associates.” They too believe in the power of words, and images, to change culture. —LAUREN O’NEILL-BUTLER, April/May 2019 issue of BOOKFORUM

Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here provides a rich introduction to Lacy’s practice…It cements her position as a key protagonist of feminist, performance, and social practice art of recent decades, but also insists on the continuing relevance of her collaborative methodology, performative tactics, and carefully orchestrated socio-political and aesthetic strategies…It appeals to readers who, like myself, have a long-standing interest in the artist’s work but were unable to travel to visit the exhibition, as well as to new and future “audiences of myth and memory” (in Lacy’s own words) who may be experiencing these ephemeral works through the catalogue’s pages for the very first time, long after they have ceased to exist. The book “makes history” in this way by renouncing chronology in favor of a thematic organization which highlights the recurring strategies and techniques of Lacy’s collaborative approach to both art and social policy since the 1970s.” —The Brooklyn Rail
