Susy Bielak

Susy Bielak’s art and writing responds to issues including migration, displacement, and the relationship between domestic life and disaster. In the process, she mines personal and political histories, texts, and archives to find the allegorical possibilities and poetics of people, places, and materials. Bielak’s work has been collected and exhibited widely, including by the International Print Center, Museo Tamayo, San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, and Walker Art Center, and published in Art Papers, Poetry Magazine, and New American Paintings. She received her MFA from the University of California, San Diego. She frequently makes work with Fred Schmalz in the collaborative Balas & Wax.
