As an artist, curator, educator, performer and dancer, Suzanne Jackson has committed her life and career to creating art. From 1968 to 1970, she ran Gallery 32, an experimental art gallery in Los Angeles meant to provide supportive and communal spaces for artists, particularly Black artists. At the gallery, Jackson encouraged discussion and activism, hosting fundraisers for causes such as the Black Arts Council.
Throughout the past fifty years, Jackson never adhered to one type of artistic style or trend for her work. From her acrylic paintings and assemblages of the 1970s and 80s, to her sculptural and three-dimensional experimentations with paint in the 1990s, Jackson, who resides in Savannah, Georgia, continues to explore the boundaries of art throughout her career.
