Suzy Lake 2016 GG Art Award

Suzy Lake has been named one of the 2016 winners of the Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Art.

Listen to today’s interview (March 7, 2016) on q with guest host Piya Chattopadyay, which is billed as the Subversive Suzy Lake.

Suzy Lake discusses her groundbreaking work, why her art isn’t quite biographical, and how identity can be formed through resistance. She was among the first women to use performance and photography to confront gender politics — and her influence on the art scene was immediate and immense.
