New Book by Professor Erin Silver, Suzy Lake: Life & Work

The Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory congratulates Assistant Professor Erin Silver on the release of her new book, Suzy Lake: Life & Work (Art Canada Institute).

In this book, Silver examines Lake’s interests in issues of identity in relation to society, gender, and the universal experiences of power and authority, and the extraordinary range of her creative experiments with materials. Bringing new insights to Lake’s tremendously varied projects, Silver reveals how Lake’s inventive practice has challenged audiences for decades and continues to do so today.

“Suzy Lake is dope.”
