New York Times art critic Holland Cotter selected Leaving Art: Writings on Performance, Pollitics, and Publics, 1974-2007, a new collection of essays by Graduate Public Practice Chair Suzanne Lacy, as one of five art books for gift giving:
For nearly 40 years Ms. Lacy’s collaborative, community-based art projects, some involving hundreds of people, have been grappling with matters of race, class and possible social change with a hands-on audacity that few artists can match. This book, with a persuasive introduction by the artist-historian Moira Roth, at last puts Ms. Lacy’s own fluent accounts of her life and work between covers. The result is a moving and feisty document of a committed life, one that students of the art of our time will be grateful for in the years ahead.
