Carolee Schneemann Pioneering Feminist Artist Dies Age 79

https://www.artlyst.com/news/carolee-schneemann-pioneering-feminist-artist-dies-age-79/



Carolee Schneemann, multidisciplinary artist who transformed the definition of art, especially discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender has died age 79. Born in Fox Chase, Pennsylvania, in 1939 she began her career as a painter influenced by the then-popular style of Abstract Expressionism.

With a career spanning over 60 years of invention, provocation, and canonical contributions to Postwar Art, Carolee Schneemann was a multidisciplinary artist who worked in painting, photography, performance, film, video, mixed media, and installations. A pioneer of feminist performance who transformed the very definition of art, Schneemann created work that was characterised by research into archaic visual traditions, pleasure wrested from suppressive taboos, and the body of the artist in relation to the social body.

Schneemann’s best-known work was the sensational Meat Joy, the 1964 performance united semi-nude men and women who created a mass by rolling in meat, fish and blood.

She was also noted for her Abstract paintings, photography, performance art and installation works shown at Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art; Whitney Museum of American Art; Museum of Modern Art, NYC; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and most recently in a retrospective at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York entitled “Up To And Including Her Limits”. Film and video retrospectives Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Modern Art, NY; National Film Theatre, London; Whitney Museum, NY; San Francisco Cinematheque; Anthology Film Archives, NYC.
