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.

NEIL WEDMAN: FORGET ME: 27 Jan. - 4 Mar. 2011 (Reception Wednesday 9 February, 5-8 pm, artist's talk: 6 pm in room 207 next to the Gallery.) Neil Wedman is the ideal kind of artist to bring to an art school because he is accomplished in many media, including drawing, video, painting and bookmaking. Forget Me is made up of "screen test" clips that Wedman shot in 1970, when he was a very young man, set to music by The Cure. The artist: "The original film was shot not by me but under my direction by some forgotten, anonymous buddy whose dad had a movie camera. That was in 1970 and I was fifteen or sixteen years old. I am the person off camera on the left to whom the subjects respond. I can't remember what I was saying to them, just asking non-sequitur type questions I think.... The film was shot in a classroom at the high school we all attended and the on-camera participants were assembled through a kind of open casting call..."
