Carolee Schneemann, multidisciplinary artist, transformed the definition of art, especially discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender. The history of her work is characterized by research into archaic visual traditions, pleasure wrested from suppressive taboos, the body of the artist in dynamic relationship with the social body.
Internationally renowned artist Carolee Schneeman will be giving a talk at Texas State University in San Marcos on April 20th, 2010 in room 2121 of the JCM building (link to campus map with JCM building for directions: http://www.maps.txstate.edu/campus/buildings/jcm.html). The talk will begin at 5PM.
This is going to be a great opportunity to hear Schneemann speak and the talk should draw in folks from San Antonio and Austin. There are members of the Texas State faculty (myself included) that want to set a precedent for bringing in artists of Schneemann’s caliber – so your attendance will be much appreciated!
