Then and Now, Carolee Schneemann, Œuvres d’histoire

Thirty-five years on from Viet Flakes (a collage film that Carolee Schneemann made in 1965 using pictures of the Vietnam War), Snows and Terminal Velocity (a montage of photographs from 9/11 that show bodies falling from the World Trade Center) reveal how much Carolee Schneemann – who is regarded as having been a trailblazer for the first generation of feminist artists – has been a closely focused and committed witness of the events and conflicts of her time. Although her visual art – the mingling of disciplines in her œuvre since the early 1960s has included painting, assemblage, theatre and cinema in her “kinetic theater” or “expanded cinema” – made her a recognized pioneer of performance, cinema and multimedia art, this exhibition and its accompanying book are among the first to focus on the constant engagement of her work with contemporary history.

Coproduced with musée départemental d’Art contemporain de Rochechouart for the exhibition Carolee Schneemann. Œuvres d’histoire, from October 4th to December 15th 2013. The exhibition will take place at MUSAC, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León from July 19th to December 31st 2014.
