Opening October 22, the exhibition "Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting" at MoMA PS1 is the first comprehensive retrospective of the groundbreaking artist's decades-long career.  

“Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting” at MoMA PS1
Opening October 22, “Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting,” at MoMA PS1 (22-25 Jackson Ave., Long Island City) marks the first exhaustive retrospective of the artist’s 60-year career. The entire trajectory of Schneemann’s work — from paintings to assembled objects and mechanical elements to avant-garde experimental theater and multimedia performances and installations — will be on display. Of particular interest to Schneemann has been the social construction of the female body — including the use of her own body in installations—as well as the cultural biases of art history. Admission is free for New York City residents.

Visitors will weave their designs out of paper strips on finger looms. Admission is pay-as-you-wish.
