A Conversation with artist Carolee Schneemann
Tuesday, April 24, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Join us for an evening dialogue with pioneering artist Carolee Schneemann. Her work has profoundly shaped contemporary discourses on the body, sexuality, and gender since the 1960’s. This unique conversation will take place in historic Mitchell Hall at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, surrounded by paintings of the College's founding Fellows.
Schneemann will visit Philadelphia during the week of April 23, 2012. Her visit to the City is entitled Utterly Precarious: Carolee Schneemann in 5 Parts, and is a collaboration between The College, The University of Pennsylvania, and Slought Foundation.
" . . . artists as varied as Hannah Wilke, Rebecca Horn, Karen Finley, Jeff Koons, Kiki Smith, Janine Antoni, Matthew Barney, Lisa Yuskavage, the Starn brothers, Tracy Emins and Spencer Tunick have traveled trails Ms. Schneemann blazed." Amy Newman, New York Times, 2002
"Serious work on this complex, gifted artist has barely begun." Kristen Stiles, Millenium Film Journal, Fall 2011
