Celebrate the opening of Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here with an evening filled with art, DJ Lizzy and DJ Pituca from Chulita Vinyl Club, dancing, and special performances from Youth Speaks, YR Media, and Caleb Duarte with students from N.E.S.T., the Fremont High School Newcomer Educational Support and Transition Program.
Suzanne Lacy is a pioneer of socially engaged art and public practice, promoting dialogue and collaborations with communities — artists, activists, organizations, schools — throughout her prolific career.
Co-organized by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here is the first full retrospective of the Los Angeles–based artist. The YBCA presentation offers a new, experimental approach to authorship and participation, inspired by Lacy’s own commitment to collaborative creation.
