Exhibition

On view
Jan 27, 2012 to Apr 1, 2012
Main Level, Gelvin Noel Gallery, Gelvin Noel Annex, and Light Court

A multidisciplinary artist, Carolee Schneemann transformed the definition of contemporary art, steering it toward a discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender. Schneemann initially examined these issues through the medium of painting, but in the early 1960s she began employing other media—notably, performance art, installation art, and documentary photography—to explore suppressive taboos and the relationship between the individual human body and the social body.
 

This retrospective exhibition presented Schneemann's career from her earliest work to her most recent investigations, ultimately revealing the artist's thought process. The exhibition included paintings, drawings, photography, installation work, video projections, and writings. Schneemann is a MFA graduate from the School of Art + Design, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Carolee Schneemann: Within and Beyond the Premises, curated by Brian Wallace, was first organized by and presented at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, State University of New York at New Paltz from February–July 2010. This revised presentation was organized by Krannert Art Museum in partnership with The Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington.
