In 2019, at 75 years old, Suzanne Jackson had her solo debut at Ortuzar Projects in New York with the show “NEWS!” The exhibition included masterful paintings bathed in light acrylic washes that appear inky and fluid, plus several of her recent “anti-canvases”—suspended, tapestry-like forms made from acrylic and embedded with poetic arrangements of nets, strings, rods, and found objects, like bells and bamboo. That show followed a major retrospective of Jackson’s work at the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia. Jackson has been honing her craft for over five decades, actively creating work and fostering Black art communities since the 1960s. In 1968, Jackson opened her own art space, Gallery 32, in her Los Angeles studio. The gallery showed the work of important African American artists, including David Hammons and Betye Saar, at a time when it was particularly difficult for Black artists to show work at major institutions. Jackson is featured in The Artsy Vanguard 2020.
