Carolee Schneemann will present a program of short videos Mysteries of the Pussies, Americana I-Ching Apple Pie, Ask the Goddess, and Infinity Kisses The Movie, with a talk in which she presents her motives, the nature of the materials she employs, as well as the social context in which her works evolve. Gender issues of language and sexuality are given outrageously edited strands of language and physicality. Underlying taboos, marginalizations, and traditional constraints addressed towards woman artists are insightful, erotic as well as hilarious.
Schneemann, a multidisciplinary artist, transformed the definition of art, especially discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender. The history of her work is characterized by research into archaic visual traditions, pleasure wrested from suppressive taboos, the body of the artist in dynamic relationship to the social body.
Schneemann has had paintings, photographs, performance art and installation works shown at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art; the Whitney Museum of American Art; the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and a retrospective at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York entitled “Up To And Including Her Limits”. Film and video retrospectives were shown at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Modern Art, NY; National Film Theatre, London; Whitney Museum, NY; San Francisco Cinematheque; and the Anthology Film Archives, NYC. Her many awards include the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant; Guggenheim Fellowship; Gottlieb Foundation Grant; the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.
