From sexual expression and the objectification of women to human suffering and the violence of war, Body Politics will be the first major survey of Schneemann’s work in the UK.

Dates: Thu 08 Sep 2022 - Sun 08 Jan 2023.

Schneemann was a radical artist who remains a feminist icon and point of reference for numerous contemporary artists to this day, with her work concerning 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.
