Join Assistant Curator of Carolee Schneemann: Body Politics, Amber Li for a tour of the exhibition, focusing on some of her personal highlights.

Schneemann was a radical artist who remains a feminist icon and point of reference for numerous contemporary artists to this day. Addressing urgent topics from sexual expression and the objectification of women to human suffering and the violence of war, her work is concerned with the precarious lived experience of humans and animals.

The exhibition will feature the artist’s early paintings; her experimental sculptural assemblages and kinetic works; her pioneering performance work in which she used her own body as a medium; her ground-breaking group performances; as well as her lyrical films and immersive multi-media installations. With over 200 objects and rarely seen archival material, this exhibition positions Schneemann as one of the most relevant, provocative and inspiring artists of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

Amber Li is Curatorial Assistant at Barbican. Previously, she was Curatorial Trainee at The Hepworth Wakefield where she worked on the second year of iniva's Future Collect project (2022). Amber is also a member of Future Commons.
