REMAINS TO BE SEEN: New and Restored Films and Videos of Carolee Schneeman

Other programs in REMAINS TO BE SEEN:
Nov 7: Artist Talk & Screening
Nov 16-17: Kitch's Last Meal

Anthology, EAI, and PERFORMA07 join together to celebrate the indomitable Carolee Schneemann. With a prolific oeuvre that spans 40-plus years of activity, Schneemann never ceases to cross all mediums, thresholds or boundaries. Whether making handcrafted diary films, provocative performances, photos, paintings or installations, Scheneeman??s varied creations resonate with raw poetic power. In words, images and actions, Scheneeman deconstructs our ingrained preconceptions and everyday assumptions. Her art is deeply personal, sharply critical, intensely expressive and always incredibly honest.

REMAINS TO BE SEEN is an opportunity to discover recent videos by Schneemann alongside brand-new preservation prints of seminal film works. Anthology is ecstatic to debut the preservation of Kitch??s Last Meal, a film originally presented as a vertical double-super-8mm projection. A second program will feature the NYC premiere of Anthology??s stunning restoration of Fuses, alongside newly discovered and preserved Schneeman films from EAI and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
