Susanne Slavick is an artist, curator and the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University where she served as Head of the School of Art from 2000-06. Her most recent curatorial project (with Kathy M. Newman) is Marx@200 that featured 40 contemporary artists addressing Marx's critique of capitalism.
