Film: Suzy Lake: Playing with Time
Sunday February 18, 2018: 2:00pm to 3:30pm
Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Join us for this feature length documentary on photographer Suzy Lake, one of the seminal feminist artists to evolve out of the heyday of the 1960’s.
A master of the art of self-portraiture, Lake influenced Cindy Sherman as well as a host of other female photographers. Lake makes art that addresses politics, gender and issues of youth, beauty and aging while reflecting on her own journey through time. Interviews with Lucy Lippard, Connie Butler, Mary Beth Edelson, Françoise Sullivan, Martha Wilson, Barbara Astman and Lisa Steele tell a story of how much has changed in the worlds of feminism and art and yet how much things remain the same.
This 2014 62-minute film is not rated. A discussion will follow.
This program is in partnership with the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art and Design. After the screening, participants are invited to the Stamps Gallery at 201 S. Division Street for an exhibition tour and refreshments.
