Bio: Suzanne Brown is a 22-year-old artist living in Philadelphia; she is currently working towards her BFA at Tyler School of Art. Formerly a Chinese Intelligence student, Brown’s work is heavily influenced by international sociopolitical issues, addressing topics such as poverty, rape culture, sexism, and abuse. Her work has participated in a number of group exhibitions in galleries such as Vox Populi, the Louvres, SCOPE Miami, and Stella Elkins.
About the project: I made this series in hopes of presenting “rape validations” in a new way. By putting these phrases next to a different subject, viewers will – I hope – take an extra second to really consider the effects of victim blaming.
