Eliminating Subject and Object: A Conversation with Susan York
by Jan Riley

Susan York and I began our day at Dia:Beacon last fall with a guided tour of Michael Heizer’s sunken sculptures. She examined the way the pieces were set into the floor and questioned the guides about how they were installed. York investigated each piece with intention, wanting to see exactly how things were made and to understand why they were made that way. York has her MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. The attention to detail and craft that she gives to her own works carries over into her examination of the works and practices of other artists. She currently teaches sculpture at the College of Santa Fe in New Mexico.
