Join Savannah-based artist Suzanne Jackson on a personalized tour of her retrospective, Suzanne Jackson: Five Decades.
The exhibition features 42 signature works made between 1959–2018, alongside ephemera such as photographs, letters, periodicals, and journals. The retrospective concentrates on how Jackson’s consistent references to love and relationships (both human and animal), the human body, geography, history, and music can all be traced to the natural world — informed by an upbringing in the Yukon Territory, significant time spent in Idyllwild, CA, and the past two decades in coastal Georgia.
Additionally, this exhibition importantly connects Jackson’s oeuvre and history to peer artists and thinkers: in Los Angeles and the West Coast during the 1960s–80s including the seminal Gallery 32 she founded and its artistic circle; the theatre communities in California, New Haven, CT, New York, NY, and Philadelphia, PA in the 1990s; and the Savannah, GA art community over the past two decades.
Suzanne Jackson: Five Decades is organized by Telfair Museums and curated by Rachel Reese, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. The retrospective is available for travel from 2020–2022.
