Valerie Suter is a visual artist and educator working in painting, sculpture, and animation. Her multidisciplinary practice explores the subjectivity of perspective in personal and collective memory and embraces experimentation and collaboration across mediums. Guided by tenderness and respect for her subject matter, her projects often challenge dominant narratives and hierarchies in art history.
Originally from New York, she earned a BA in History from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, studied studio art at Central St. Martins College of Art & Design in London, UK, and received her MFA in Art & Design from Rutgers University in New Jersey. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally and has been an artist-in-residence and grantee of the European Ceramic Workcentre and the Vermont Studio Center, a fellow of The Art & Law Program in New York, an Eagleton Institute of Politics graduate fellow, a nominee for the Dedalus Foundation MFA Fellowship, and a finalist for the AXA Art Prize.
