Suzanne Broughel is a multi‐disciplinary artist based in New York. In her work, she explores issues of race – particularly the construct of whiteness and its implications towards being a raced individual. She has exhibited at P.S. 1/MOMA, Marlborough Gallery, Columbia University, The University of Memphis, Rush Arts Gallery, and Longwood Art Gallery, among other spaces. She was a 2008 participant at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and in the Emerge 8 Program at Aljira Center for Contemporary Art. Broughel is the recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts and A.I.R. Gallery, and was a resident artist in the 2010 Triangle Artists Workshop. In 2014, she completed The Laundromat Project’s Create Change Fellowship. In 2015 she was a participant in the The New Museum’s R&D Seminar: Persona, as well as The Art & Law Program.
As a member of the tART feminist art collective, she co‐organized (with Christopher Hutchinson) 2016’s A Bad Question, an exhibition and intersectional feminist symposium in Atlanta, Georgia. This collaboration between tART and The Smoke School of Art collective provided a platform for women artists and scholars to share their work and ideas in multiple ways, including a gallery exhibition, an online exhibition, a day‐long symposium, and a zine.
Broughel is a long‐time member of European Dissent NYC, a white antiracist group that is an affinity group of the New York Antiracist Alliance. Her involvement with white antiracist groups is a direct outgrowth of her thesis research while completing the MFA program at Hunter College CUNY in 2003.
