Celebrate the opening of the exhibition Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here with an evening filled with art, DJs, dancing, and special performances from Youth Speaks, YR Media, and Caleb Duarte with students from N.E.S.T., the Fremont High School Newcomer Educational Support and Transition Program.

Suzanne Lacy is a pioneer of socially engaged art and public practice, promoting dialogue and collaborations with communities, from artists and activists to organizations and schools, throughout her prolific career.

Co-organized by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here is the first full retrospective of the Los Angeles–based artist. The YBCA presentation offers a new, experimental approach to authorship and participation, inspired by Lacy’s own commitment to collaborative creation.

Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here is co-organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
