About this Item

During the late 1950s and 1960s artists with a wide range of interests began to push the boundaries of Contemporary art. Yves Klein in France, and Carolee Schneemann, Yayoi Kusama, Charlotte Moorman, and Yoko Ono in New York City were pioneers of performance that utilized nudity. Carolee Schneemann's best known work "Interior Scroll" (1975), is a performance that culminated in her unrolling a scroll from her vagina and reading it to the audience. It was an essential moment in performance art history, and an important milestone in the artist's provocative and influential oeuvre. Published to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Carolee Schneemann's 1975 provocative and controversial act, "Interior Scroll 1975-2005" contains an original giclée print measuring 48 x 3", signed and numbered by the artist at recto (No. 18 of 100 copies) and rolled into a plexiglass cylinder (size: 3 1/2 x 7"). Created after a series of photographic images taken during the original 1975 performance, the giclée print is a celebration of Schneemann's visionary and avant-garde art. This piece has never been opened and is as new. About the artist: Carolee Schneemann (born in 1939) is an American visual artist, known for her discourses on the body, sexuality and gender. Her work is primarily characterized by research into visual traditions, taboos, and the body of the individual in relationship to social bodies. Her works have been shown at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the New York Museum of Modern Art, and the London National Film Theatre. Schneemann has taught at several universities, including the California Institute of the Arts, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Hunter College, and Rutgers University. Additionally, she has published widely, producing works such as "Cézanne, She Was a Great Painter" (1976) and "More than Meat Joy: Performance Works and Selected Writings" (1997). Schneemann's works have been associated with a variety of art classifications including Fluxus, Neo-Dada, the Beat Generation, and happenings. Bookseller Inventory # 40637
