Suzanne Lacy & Pablo Helguera pairs for the first time the work of two of the leading practitioners of the Public Practice movement. Suzanne Lacy, born in 1945 in Wasco, CA and based in Los Angeles, has played a key role in Public Practice since the 1970s, addressing political matters such as the women’s and civil rights movements through performance-based art that engaged the public and advocated for change or questioned societal norms. Pablo Helguera, born in 1971 in Mexico City and based in New York City, represents the next generation of socially engaged artists and is deeply influenced by Lacy.
