Suzanne Snider is a research-based artist and educator whose work is deeply influenced by oral history theory and practice. Her most recent projects include sound installation, essays and archive design. In 2012, Snider founded Oral History Summer School in Hudson, New York to explore nontraditional applications for (and experimental outcomes of) life history and collaborative narrative practices. Snider has been invited to run trainings for Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, the National Public Housing Museum and the National Library of Kosovo, among others. She served as an advisor for the Judd Foundation’s Oral History program and trained curators at MoMA as part of the museum’s international program on Contemporary and Modern Art Perspectives. Her nonfiction has been published in The Guardian, The Washington Post, The Believer, BOMB and several artist catalogues, supported by repeat fellowships at Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony. In 2018, she co-founded the Trauma and Journalism work group with journalist Allison Lichter, funded by the Mellon Foundation and the New School. Prior to her work with adult learners, she taught movement and art in the New York City public school system (pre-K through 6th), and developed arts curriculum for visually impaired students at the New York Institute for Special Education. She lives in Hudson, New York with her daughter.
