Introducing Suzy Lake.pdf
Influenced by artists such as Cindy Sherman, Lake's work demonstrates the innovation and continued influence of the 'Feminist Avant-Garde' movement on contemporary art today. Lake's work forms part of the public collection at the Albright Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY as well as within numerous museums and galleries across Canada. Her work has been exhibited widely, including in the US at Jack Shainman Gallery, New York; Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art; Geffen Contemporary, Los Angeles; National Museum of Women in Art, DC and Santa Monica Museum of Art, California. This multi-author publication considers how Lake's ideas and practice developed over time from her hometown of Detroit to Montreal to Toronto, informed by the cultural character of each city. Featuring celebrated works as well as newly commissioned series, Introducing Suzy Lake reveals the richness and originality of her accomplishments as one of North America's most influential artists working today.
