Susan Robb

Emerging Fields, 2013

Susan Robb’s work is an ongoing investigation of people, place and our search for utopia. She orchestrates temporary, site-responsive and socially-engaged projects to transform contemporary concerns—climate crisis, social isolation, high-speed daily living—into opportunities to re-envision and re-connect. Her projects include The Long Walk, ONN/OF “a light festival”, Parking Squid, Sleeper Cell Training Camp and Warmth Giant Black Toobs. In addition to the Creative Capital award, Robb’s work has been funded by a Pollack Krasner Foundation Grant, two Artist Trust Fellowships, a Stranger Genius Award, 4Culture, and the City of Seattle’s Office of Arts and Culture. Her work has been collected and shown nationally and internationally.
