Susan Scafati Artist Reception

Susan Scafati is an American conceptual artist who explores the ways in which individual versus collective identities, personal versus cultural mythologies, are constructed. She explores the iconography and materiality that contribute to the way meaning is organized and its impact on human experience. Scafati’s solo exhibition features in the 3rd and 4th Floor Balcony Windows a 2-story, site-responsive, mixed-media installation that reimagines our constructed landscape as a suspended spectrum of everyday urban forms in flux. This exhibition extends to the library’s 6th Floor Living Room where Scafati’s archival pigment and silver gelatin prints and sculptures are on view. These artworks explore existence and perception, inviting us to think about how representation of one’s self and one’s world is expressed in our visual, virtual culture today. This project is funded in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department, and sponsored by Big Medium. 6th Floor Exhibition on view April 19 – June 12; 3rd & 4th Floor Installation on view starting April 16.
