CAROLEE SCHNEEMANN: UP TO AND INCLUDING HER LIMITS
10 Nov. 2010 -14 Jan. 2011
Opening reception Wednesday 10 November, 5-8 pm
Artist's talk/performance: 8 pm in the Art Barn, University of Manitoba Fort Garry Campus
Carolee Schneemann is one of America's most important post-war artists, and she has a special affection for Winnipeg. She last visited the School of Art in the year 2000. Her video Up to and Including Her Limits from the mid-1970s is especially important as an historical marker made halfway between the action painting of Jackson Pollock (to which it/she explicitly refers as an inspiration) and the recent "Drawing Restraint" performances of Matthew Barney.
