Work by Carolee Schneemann
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.
This exhibition was part of the series, BLACK BOX: VIDEO PROJECTIONS AT GALLERY ONE ONE ONE, September 2010 – March 2011, during which the gallery was transformed from a white cube into a black box.
