An audio recording of Suzanne Lacy's talk at Arnolfini in November 2009.


Suzanne Lacy is an internationally known artist whose work includes installations, video, and large-scale performances on social themes and urban issues. She is a pioneer of socially-engaged practice and is renowned for her writing including the seminal publication Mapping the Terrain (1975). Lacy is currently engaged in a project in Bristol entitled The University of Local Knowledge, a collaboration between Knowle West Media Centre and Arnolfini, focused on supporting an ongoing professional development programme for state of the art research between equal spheres of knowledge - community development, local knowledge, and contemporary art practices. Lacy will talk about her practice followed by a chaired discussion with Penny Evans of Knowle West Media Centre and Tom Trevor, Director of Arnolfini.
