Live performance, screenings, and music

Join us to explore the resonances between the work of radical artist Carolee Schneemann and contemporary practitioners.

Taking place at Rich Mix, this event explores sensory bodily practices and the idea of working with, up to, and including our own limits.

The evening will include screenings of a selection of Schneemann’s performance films, a live performance of Voicings by artist Florence Peake, as well as a screening of Peake’s work RITE performed at Palais de Tokyo. The evening provides a fresh context for interpreting both Peake and Schneemann’s work, expanding on the synergies between these two artists.

A sound performance by artist Hannah Catherine Jones will bring the evening to a close, exploring the limits of language and voice, from the operatic to the guttural. Performed alongside screenings of Schneemann’s films, Jones’ sound will provide a new sonic texture to Schneemann’s work, and shed new light on both artists’ practices

Taking place at Rich Mix. This event is for over 14s.

Carolee Schneemann: Body Politics Playlist

Schneemann had an interdisciplinary and diverse practice. It is perhaps then unsurprising that she also had a wide-ranging taste in music - as happy listening to Minimalism as Marvin Gaye. Listen to a selection of the records that she loved here.
