Suzanne Stroebe was born in San Francisco and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Stroebe is an interdisciplinary artist; her practice encompasses drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. A Feminist Tea Party, with her collaborator Caitlin Rueter, is a performance and participatory project that has been ongoing since early 2010. Rueter and Stroebe have brought their project to several venues, including Winkleman Gallery, the 2011 CAA Conference with the Women’s Caucus for Art, and NYFA Gallery. This past January they traveled to Los Angeles to participate with Pacific Standard Time at Pomona College Museum of Art, and visited three other venues on the West coast.
Stroebe’s individual work has been exhibited in a variety of venues, including The Kitchen, Janet Kurnatowski Gallery, and Verge Art Fair with NURTUREart Gallery, all in New York, and recently at Carol Jazzar Contemporary Art, and LegalArt, both in Miami during Art Basel in 2011. She recently was awarded the Ellen Hoffman Memorial Fellowship at SOHO20 Gallery in Chelsea, and is looking forward to her solo exhibition in that space in early 2013. Her work has been written about in The Huffington Post, Art Info, Art Critical, and Bitch Magazine among other publications.
