About the Artist

Susan Scafati is an American conceptual artist who explores the ways in which individual versus collective identities and personal versus cultural mythologies are constructed. Providing a framework for these interests include subjects such as smart phones, social media, archives, domestic spaces, and European bullfights. Across these bodies of work, Scafati deconstructs the iconography and materiality that contribute to the way meaning is organized and its impact on human experience. Scafati works across multiple mediums. She is known for large-scale art installations, and her artwork has been exhibited in museums and galleries. Recent major commissions include a 111-foot installation featured at the Texas Cultural Trust's Texas Medal of Arts Awards; a 4-story installation featured at the Facebook o_ce; and a 2-story installation in the Austin Central Library windows.
