No where else in the world can you find the range of disciplines in one school. Over the last 50 years as we forged new programs, built our home in New York and expanded to our global academic centers, institutes emerged. Each are built with shared values, common goals, and a priority for putting students first. The result – a place where artists and scholars create the future.

In conjunction with the publication "Carolee Schneemann: Unforgivable" (Black Dog Publishing, 2016) artist Carolee Schneemann and scholar Kenneth White will be in conversation for an informal evening exploring the legacy of Schneemann's work.
Schneemann is one of the most important artists of the postwar period. Her work in a range of media - painting, film, video, dance and performance, constructions and installations, the written word, and assemblage - presents an unparalleled catalogue of radical aesthetic experimentation. Works such as "Meat Joy" (1964), "Fuses" (1964-1966), "Up To and Including Her Limits" (1973-1976) and "Interior Scroll" (1975) are now considered canonical projects, required entries in any meaningful account of contemporary art, belying their once notoriety as feminist challenges to the very concept of the art historical canon.
Throughout the last 50 years, Schneemann has participated in the most significant formulations of the avant-garde, having made crucial contributions in Fluxus, happenings, expanded cinema, and performance cultures, while complicating generic definitions that might cohere to her work. Schneemann has been the subject of numerous exhibitions and publications throughout her career, and her work is in the collections of Tate Modern, Commune di Milano, Centre Georges Pompidou, Muzeum Współczesne Wrocław, Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art.
"Carolee Schneemann: Unforgivable" is the most thorough visual overview of Schneemann's work to date. Organized by five interrelated categories - Interviews and Correspondence, Painting, Cinema, Sites, and Technological Processes - this volume brings together previously published essays and interviews by authorities on the artist's work. The texts, many scarce or out of print, examine the significance of Schneemann's work in its historical context, and its vital urgency for our present.
This event is co-sponsored by Performance Studies (NYU), the Public Program Fund of Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory, and NYPAC: The New York Performance Artists Collective.
