This two-day symposium brings together UW faculty, guest speakers, and Carolee Schneemann herself to encourage an expansive public dialogue about the Henry Art Gallery exhibition. The symposium will be organized around performances, lectures, forums, screenings, and other opportunities that all explore complex themes of feminism, performance, and the body.
About Carolee Schneemann
A multidisciplinary artist, Carolee Schneemann transformed the definition of contemporary art, steering it toward a discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender. Her controversial and pioneering investigation into suppressive taboos and human sexuality in conflict with the social body continues to inspire further discussion today.
