In this performative/lecture—a format pioneered by the artist and employed throughout her career—Schneemann, as she describes it, “travels backwards and forwards in time.” During the lecture the artist will analyze recurring formal properties of her work, beginning with obsessive childhood drawings of a staircase. She will also explore the mysteries of a notched stick, paper folds, indentations, the slice of line in space, and her recent photographic grids and objects.
