Suzy Lake at Arsenal Contemporary

Arsenal Contemporary is pleased present Suzy Lake’s first solo exhibition in New York. ‘Performance of Protest’ follows Lake’s five-decade spanning career, capturing her continued investigation of her own image as a means to probe and resist constructions of gender, identity and beauty. The exhibition focuses on the current of resistance that connects some of Lake’s best known series. In many cases, this act of protest arrives by ways of the artist’s deft understanding yet brilliant “misuse” of photography, other times resistance is suggested in the confrontation between the viewer and Lake’s own body.

Join Arsenal Contemporary for an opening reception on Tuesday, November 19 from 6-8pm.
