This Friday, Henry Art Gallery will present Carolee Schneemann: Mysteries of the Iconographies. In this 'performative/lecture', Schneemann will discuss her work and also "...explore the mysteries of a notched stick, paper folds, indentations, the slice of line in space, and her recent photographic grids and objects." The lecture is part of a larger symposium the Henry has organized called Streaming In From The Moon, "...which will explore the complex and controversial themes of feminism, performance, and the body through a series of performances, lectures, public forums, film screenings, and other opportunities for public discourse." This all day event will include lectures, performances, and a film screening.

This exhibition is a huge deal but don't take my word for it, you can read Emily Pothast's thoughts on it over here.

Broke but still want to go? The Henry is looking for volunteers. Find out more here.
