Suzy Lake was born and raised in Detroit. Following the social and political unrest of the 1960s Lake emigrated to Montréal in 1968, where she was among the first female artists in the nation to adopt performance, video, and photography to explore the politics of gender, the body, and identity. In this exhibition, Lake returns to her childhood neighborhood and various locations central to her family history to explore the cycles of urban development and decay in working class Detroit, as well as her experience with ageism.

On Saturday, January 20, join us for a presentation on the exhibition and related works by Suzy Lake, followed by a conversation between the artist and Detroit-based art historian and University of Michigan Dearborn Associate Professor Dr. Nadja Rottner.
