The Susan O’Malley Project
Now through August 1, 2021
Zuckerman Museum of Art
The Susan O’Malley Project is a site specific installation featuring the work of artist
Susan O’Malley. Her work explored generosity, positivity, and sincerity, and the profound
possibility of listening as a kind of artistic practice. O’Malley was an artist and
curator of Mexican-Irish descent whose work often interwove cultures and perspectives,
engaging various aspects of production and dissemination throughout material culture.
Her work appeared on fences, posts, and signs in areas that were being heavily gentrified.
Throughout her practice, she met people in our society in their space as they were,
as they are. Many of the works in this solo project are curated from a series titled
“Advice from My 80-Year-Old Self.” In this series, O’Malley explored intergenerational
knowledge sharing by asking members of the public what advice they would give their
younger selves. O’Malley explored positivity and the human capacity for happiness,
but she also explored profound loss and grief throughout her artistic career. All
of her work was cohesive in its capacity for human connection across cultural spaces.
