Graduate Lecture Series: Susan Silton
Friday, June 22, 2012 - 6:30pm
San Francisco Art Institute
800 Chestnut Street
Susan Silton works across media including photography/video, installation, performance, text, audio, lithography, and internet technologies, and within diverse contexts such as public sites, social network platforms, and traditional galleries and institutions. Her practice engages multiple aesthetic strategies to mine the complexity of perception and to interrupt—through combinations of humor, discomfort, and subterfuge—the “othering” that often results from distorted perception.
Silton has exhibited at the SFMOMA, LACMA, and ICA Philadelphia, and has received fellowships and awards from the Getty/California Community Foundation, the MacDowell Colony, and the Center for Cultural Innovation.
