Carolee Schneemann at Bryn Mawr: Video Sculptures, Photographs, Manuscripts, and a Performative Lecture

thumbnail

September 30 – December 12, 2014

Canaday Library Class of 1912 Rare Book Room Gallery

Opening Event Tuesday, September 30, 7:00-8:00 pm, Canaday Library Gallery

The performative lecture by Carolee Schneemann originally scheduled for this evening has been postponed due to an injury sustained by the artist. A new date will be announced as soon as possible.

Carolee Schneemann has worked for over fifty years as a solo artist and in collaboration with artists, performers, filmmakers, and writers. Her paintings, photographs, installations, writings, and performances address the aesthetic, political, and personal dimensions of sexuality and self through thoughtfully provocative collisions of images and ideas. The large video sculpture, works on paper, kinetic sculpture, and film/video works in this exhibition show Schneemann focusing on the contradictions and connections engendered in the cultural and the personal body she inhabits, identifies, and constantly homes in on.
