Carrie Schneider: Reading Women

August 18 @ 12:00 pm - September 9 @ 6:00 pm

Miller ICA, Purnell Center for the Arts

Event Navigation

Work by CMU alumna Carrie Schneider ushers in the 2018/19 academic year at the Miller Institute for Contemporary Art. The exhibition, “Reading Women,” explores the power of reading, studying, and being absorbed by knowledge. In the artist’s words, the work “reveals a constellation of influences among my creative peers.” This series is a rhizomatic view of thinkers who contribute to the intellectual capital of the artist’s community. “It’s a man’s world,” as the saying goes, but this exhibition offers a countervailing proposition. The ideas in these books shape thought, and by shaping thought, form a world made entirely by women. In repeating the same elegant and matter-of-fact gesture the exhibition forces us to consider what a world would look like if we were all reading women.
