Carolee Schneemann (1939-2019) was an American visual experimental artist, known for her multi-media works on the body, narrative, sexuality and gender. She is considered to be a prime mover of performance art, a feminist visionary and one of the most influential artists of the late 20th century.

Originally a painter in the Abstract Expressionist tradition, Schneeman was uninterested in the masculine heroism of New York painters of the time and turned to performance-based work, primarily characterized by research into visual traditions, taboos, and the body of the individual in relation to social bodies.
