Often controversial and sometimes even shocking to audiences, the work of California-based artist Suzanne Lacy has challenged viewers and participants with personal accounts of traumatic events, settings that require people to assume uncomfortable positions, multisensory productions that evoke emotional as well as intellectual responses, and even flayed lambs and beef kidneys. Lacy has experimented with ways to claim the power of mass media, to use women's consciousness-raising groups as a performance structure, and to connect her projects to lived experiences. The body and large groups of bodies are the locations for her lifelike art, revealing the aesthetics of relationships among people. In this critical examination of Suzanne Lacy, Sharon Irish survey's Lacy's art from 1972 to the present, demonstrating the pivotal roles that Lacy has had in public art, feminist theory, and community organizing. Lacy initially used her own body--or animal organs--to visually depict psychological states or social conditions in photographs, collages, and installations. In the late 1970s she turned to organizing large groups of people into art events--including her famous work, The Chrystal Quilt, a 1987 performance broadcast live on PBS and featuring hundreds of women in Minneapolis--and pioneered a new genre of public art. Irish investigates the spaces between art and life, self and other, and the body and physical structures in Lacy's multifaceted artistic projects, showing how throughout her influential career Lacy has created art that resists racism, promotes feminism, and explores challenging human relationships

"American architect Cass Gilbert built many of the major monuinents of his generation. Inspired by design throughout the ages - ancient Greece and Rome, medieval and Renaissance Europe, and contemporary traditions such as the Richandsonian Romanesque - he created buildings for the sites, clients, and programs of his own time."--BOOK JACKET. "Gilbert's career reached its peak in the 1910s and 1920s with civic and commercial buildings of great significance; the Woolworth Company Building (at its 1913 completion the tallest building in the world) and the New York Life Insurance Company Building, both in New York City, the United States Military Oceans Terminal in Brooklyn, and the United States Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C. These landmark works, emblematic of Gilbert's mastery of form and expression, reaffirm his position as a leader in design and in the profession."--Jacket
