2018 Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Reguion
Carrie Schneider: Rapt

February 1 – April 6, 2019

Motivated by Linda Nochlin's 1971 historical text “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?,” Carrie Schneider: Rapt will feature Schneider’s ongoing photographic series Reading Women. From 2012-2014 the artist approached one hundred friends—including artists, writers, and musicians—to read a text of their choice, written by a woman author, while she captured the process on film. The exhibition will include a number of the works from the series and invite the public and the student body to read the featured titles in the galleries. Schneider will also exhibit large-scale and intimate black-and-white works that reveal a focused exploration of photo-based printing techniques while pointing to the exhibition's larger thesis of women's access and entry into traditionally male-dominated fields.
