Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting

MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City

This is the first comprehensive retrospective of Carolee Schneemann, spanning the artist’s prolific six-decade career.

The exhibition brings together a series of the artist’s early paintings of the 1950s and their evolution into assemblages made in the 1960s, which integrated objects, mechanical elements, and modes of deconstruction. As a central protagonist of the New York downtown avant-garde community, she explored hybrid artistic forms culminating in experimental theater events. The exhibition considers Schneemann’s oeuvre within the context of painting by tracing the developments that led to her groundbreaking innovations in performance, film, and installation in the 1970s, as well as her increasingly spatialized multimedia installations from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
