Schneeman George - Painter Among Poets : The Collaberative Art of George Schneeman

Description

Painter Among Poets: The Collaborative Art of George Schneeman is the first full presentation of the wide range of projects that Schneeman has co-created over the past 35 years. Painter Among Poets not only investigates Schneeman's signature enthusiasm for free-wheeling artistic collaboration, it also considers his work as part of the remarkable tradition of poet/painter collaboration that grew out of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Modernism. Always open to spontaneity and engagement, Schneeman encouraged poets to cross over into his dominion and contribute visual elements to the projects in order to create a surprising work of art that neither artist nor poet could have done alone. Painter Among Poets offers the reader a behind-the-scenes look at the high-wire process of collaboration as an outgrowth of Schneeman's friendships with poets Bill Berkson, Ted Berrigan, Michael Brownstein, Tom Clark, Edwin Denby, Larry Fagin, Dick Gallup, Allen Ginsberg, Ted Greenwald, Steve Katz, Lewis MacAdams, Alice Notley, Ron Padgett, Harris Schiff, Peter Schjeldahl, Tom Veitch, Anne Waldman, Lewis Warsh and many others. Twelve of Schneeman's collaborators contribute essays and remembrances to this volume, which also features an essay by Carter Ratcliff, an extensive conversation between Schneeman and Padgett, a detailed checklist of the artist's collaborations and a bibliography.
