Although there are several kinetic works on view, as the title promises, the show is a full retrospective of the feminist foremother’s varied practice in performance, painting, photography, and video, including her infamous 1964 film Meat Joy. “This exhibition represents a crucial homecoming for an artist whose work is so deeply woven in the fabric of New York City’s experimental avant-garde of the 1960s and 1970s,” said MoMA assistant curator Erica Papernik-Shimizu. “This constant circulation between the material and the ephemeral has allowed Schneemann to create the images and sensations missing from her cultural landscape over six decades, and has contributed to the deep emotional power of her work.”
