Interview: Sharon Irish on Suzanne Lacy (includes footage from The Crystal Quilt, Minneapolis, 1987)
Author Sharon Irish has filmed a wonderful book video that documents her initial interest in artist and political justice activist Suzanne Lacy. She briefly discusses how hers is a book about relationships, and narrates archival footage of Lacy's The Crystal Quilt, which was performed by hundreds of women at the IDS Tower in downtown Minneapolis in 1987.
Irish is the author of Suzanne Lacy: Spaces Between (February 2010). Read a recent Q&A she did with University of Minnesota Press here.
