Carolee Schneemann

Carolee Schneemann: multidisciplinary artist. As one of the most influential artists of the second part of the 20th century, Schneemann’s pioneering investigations into subjectivity, the social construction of the female body, and the cultural biases of art history have had significant influence on subsequent generations of artists. She was awarded the Golden Lion Award For Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale in 2017, and is currently being celebrated with a retrospective at MoMA PS1 — which closes on March 11, 2018.
