About Suzanne Lacy - Creative Time

About Suzanne Lacy - Creative Time | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Jules Rochielle's insight:
Los Angeles-based artist Suzanne Lacy is internationally renowned as a pioneer in the field of socially engaged and public art. Lacy’s installations, videos, and performances deal with such critical issues as sexual violence, rural and urban poverty, incarceration, gender identity, labor, and aging. Working collaboratively, and as the model of a community organizer, Lacy has realized large-scale projects in London, Oakland, Los Angeles, Charleston, SC, and the Kentucky Mountains. She has won fellowships from numerous foundations, including the National Endowment for the Arts and Rockefeller Foundation, and her work has been exhibited and collected by national and international institutions. Between the Door and the Street builds on Lacy’s rich body of work devoted to issues of feminism. Examples of this include The Oakland Projects, performed in Oakland, California, between 1991 and 2000; The Tattooed Skeleton, at the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, in 2010; Silver Action, presented at Tate Modern, London, earlier this year; and Cleaning Conditions, part of the Do It exhibition at the Manchester Art Gallery, in England, in summer 2013. Lacy is also known for her writing. In 2010, Duke University Press published a collection of her essays, titled Leaving Art: Writings on Performance, Politics, and Publics, 1974–2007. She also edited the influential book Mapping the Terrain: New Genre Public Art, published in 1995 by Bay Press. Lacy has held various influential positions throughout her career, including co-founder of the Women’s Building in Los Angeles, one of the first women-owned community centers, and co-founder of the Visual and Public Art Institute at California State University at Monterey Bay. She is currently the founding Chair of MFA in Public Practice at Otis College of Art and Design, in Los Angeles.

"If the justice system does not allow changes, we will then change that system" | Insights | HiiL | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Around the world, legal systems and legal professionals, as well as social entrepreneurs are challenged with delivering more justice, to more people but with fewer resources. Innovations in the ready-made garment industry are helping global supply chains with the growing pressure of providing stable and fair conditions to its workers. We need more innovators who are up to the task. Governments, corporations and NGOs also need to learn how to work with them to strengthen their effectiveness, impact and return on investment.

Nepal Earthquake: Report from KLL Situation Room – May 17 | Kathmandu Living Labs

Nepal Earthquake: Report from KLL Situation Room – May 17 | Kathmandu Living Labs | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Nepal Earthquake: Report from KLL Situation Room – May 17 Posted on May 17, 2015 by ktmlabs When the first earthquake struck on April 25th, the Kathmandu Living Labs team quickly joined together and worked long hours on mapping needs and relief efforts. After two weeks at this furious pace, the team felt that things were starting to return to normal. Our hours slowed, and we were somewhat burned out. We got back to our normal routine of playing futsal as a team. Then on May 12th, another large 7.4 earthquake hit us. Like many in Nepal, who had started thinking that life might go back to normal again, we were discouraged. We had worked so hard, but here we were again in the same position we started. Many of our team members had to spend time taking care of their family and their homes after the 2nd quake, and our spirits were low. On top of it, we were told that we could no longer continue situation room from the same space for safety reasons. An old building, it had been damaged in the first quake, and then continued to be more and more damaged with each aftershock. Now with everything else, where would we go?
