Susan Silton is a Los Angeles–based artist whose multidisciplinary practice engages photography, video, installation, performance, sound, and language. Her 2013 work, Who’s in a Name?, 2013, is a multi-platform project that primarily takes the form of a book and engages in the relationship between suicide and celebrity.
Her practice engages multiple aesthetic strategies to mine the complexity of perception and to interrupt—through combinations of humor, discomfort, and subterfuge—the “othering” that often results from distorted perception.
Silton has exhibited at the SFMOMA, LACMA, and ICA Philadelphia, and has received fellowships and awards from the Getty/California Community Foundation, the MacDowell Colony, and the Center for Cultural Innovation.
