In Memory of Carolee Schneeman (1939 - 2019).
Book of the Day > Carolee Schneeman: Carolee's Issue 02. Published by The Artist's Institute and Koenig Books. "Carolee’s is the second issue of The Magazine of the Artist’s Institute, the publication which takes each season of the Artist’s Institute as a point of departure for new criticism, journalism, fiction, interviews and artist projects, developed around the work of a single artist. Dedicated to Carolee Schneemann (born 1939), this issue features a previously unpublished archive of images from Schneemann’s studio that documents half a century of morphological connections between her work and other visual material, including art, advertising and popular culture. Published following the Artist’s Institute’s season of exhibitions and programming examining Schneemann’s expanded conception of the body as material, Carolee’s includes a new long-form profile of Schneemann by writer Maggie Nelson that considers the artist’s relationship to the history of her reception and Schneemann’s significant influence on subsequent generations of feminists."
