Susanne Slavick, curator of Out of Rubble, presently on display at the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture, will speak about the exhibition and the accompanying book of the same title. Slavick’s work, as an artist and as co-founder of 10 Years + Counting, led her to research and edit Out of Rubble, an anthology of works by contemporary artists who address the aftermath of current and past wars. The book includes essays by Slavick and Holly Edwards and works by numerous international artists from Diana Al-Hadid to Xu Zhen.
Susanne Slavick has exhibited in museums and galleries in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Minneapolis as well as in Europe and Asia. Her paintings have been recognized through an artist fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and four awards from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. Honored as 2008 “Artist of the Year” by the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Slavick premiered “R&R&R,” a series of works on paper that convert our military expression for “rest and recuperation” to images of “revelation, regret, and restoration.”
