Graduate Public Practice Chair Suzanne Lacy in New York Times

Between the Door and the Street


Graduate Public Practice Chair Suzanne Lacy's first public work in New York, Between the Door and the Street, presented by Creative Time and the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum. took place on Oct 19 at Park Place, Brooklyn, NY 11238
Hundreds of women gathered to explore some of the most compelling and provocative issues facing women today.


To create this multi-faceted project, Lacy spent six months in conversation with a multi-racial and multi-generational group of women, at once responding to the criticism of feminism as exclusionary and honing her awareness of the multitude of issues that affect women of all backgrounds. She then worked closely with a core group of advisers—including prominent feminists, a theologian, a doctor, a labor activist, an immigration lawyer, and many others—to develop the form and specific content of the project.  Carol Kino explored Suzanne's project further in an article published in the New York Times October 10th, 2013 When Talking Makes Art Happen: Suzanne Lacy and Hundreds of Women Take to the Stoops.
