This chapter discusses Suzanne Lacy's formal entry into the art world of Los Angeles, and her subsequent experimentations on the themes of networks and exchanges within the scope of her art. Lacy explored spaces in various forms—the physical body, as well as the literal and metaphorical spaces between bodies, or networks. She sought to create a feminist network within her art, and these efforts would later culminate in the piece, One Woman Show. The Show, despite its title, primarily involved a network of women—a large-scale endeavor that would define the key points of her career, in embodying the dynamism of relationships and in exploring the themes of violence against women and loving women. Lacy also traveled through physical spaces in her performance art—demonstrating her expanding scope of the genre as well as encapsulating distinct, individual experiences within a larger social schema.
