Photographer Carrie Schneider’s exhibition, Nine Trips Around the Sun: Selected Works from 2006-2015, is on display at the University’s University Galleries, located in Uptown Normal.
Nine Trips is the largest and most comprehensive presentation of Schneider’s photographs and films to date, will be on display at University Galleries until December 20.
The exhibition’s 59 works offer a survey of the artist’s self-described “documents of something performed for the camera” and demonstrate the range of lens-based processes she has employed. The exhibition includes works from her “Derelict Self,” “Figure-Ground,” “Burning House,” and “Reading Women” series, and will premiere a 16mm film and photographs from her recent “Moon Drawings” series and silver gelatin prints from her new “Summer Drawings” project. Schneider’s “Dance Response” videos, made in collaboration with choreographer/dancer Kyle Abraham, will also be on view.
Schneider’s work has been exhibited in solo presentations at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki; Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh; California Museum of Photography, University of California Riverside ARTSblock; and Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, Norway.
Schneider received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and her MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and she is currently participating in the Whitney Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
