Suzy Lake was born and raised in Detroit. Following the social and political unrest of the 1960’s 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. 

Suzy Lake will be in attendance at the opening reception, featuring music by BEIGE, a Detroit-based DJ under the mentorship of Mother Cyborg.
