Sunday is the last day to visit the first major Carolee Schneemann retrospective held in the United States. MoMA PS1, located in Queens, New York, will close on the 11th the show that covers six decades of production by one of the pioneers of performance art. Schneemann was a central figure of the New York avant-garde, having explored sensitive themes such as feminism, intimacy, loss, as well as controversial political issues: the Vietnam War, natural disasters, among others. Those who manage to visit the show will find more than 300 works ranging from rare paintings from the 1950s and their unfolding into assemblages and collages, during the early 1960s; the works that reveal the gradual insertion of the artist's own body in the work, from the 1970s; to the multimedia installations of the 1990s and 2000s.
