DESCRIPTION


"Mysteries of the Iconography," a visual lecture by Carolee Schneemann

Schneemann travels backwards and forwards in time. Recurring formal properties are analyzed beginning with obsessive childhood drawings of a staircase. The mysteries of a notched stick, paper folds, indentations, the slice of line in space are followed as unexpected structural motives, up to and including her recent photographic grids and objects.
