From wall arrangements that map the work of the 17th century Flemish painter, Jan Brueghel the Elder, to a sound piece made in collaboration with a mathematician and classically trained opera singer, Suzanne Bocanegra's work springs from creative dialogues with a range of collaborators. Her most recent pieces have spilled out of the studio, taking the form of live performances that layer music, dance, theater, and audience interaction.
