|About Margie Schnibbe|
|I make intuitive works that blur the boundaries between art and everyday life. My practice is informed by first-person experience, psychopathology and philosophical texts. I am a list-maker, note-taker, a lover of dialogue and a writer of spoken word prose. I make drawings, paintings, installations, sculptures, music and videos. I direct and perform, often engaging other artists to work with me. Employing personal agency, formal processes and critical humor, I create intimate and complex worlds that challenge the viewer to question the status quo. I seek to subvert the male gaze and the hegemony of a patriarchal power structure.
For thirty years I have been exhibiting, screening and performing in galleries, film festivals and alternative spaces nationally and internationally. Some of these venues include: Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art (Rotterdam), Arsenal Institute for Film/Video Art, Kino Moviemento, Kant Kino (Berlin), Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna), Anthology Film Archives, Center for Book Arts, The James Gallery at CUNY Graduate Center (Manhattan), Monkeytown (Brooklyn), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), Highways (Santa Monica), and in Los Angeles at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), Film Forum, Echo Park Film Center, Circus Gallery, The Finley Gallery, Human Resources, Charlie James Gallery, Night Gallery, Nicodim Gallery, MOCA, The Hammer Museum, The Getty Museum, Vincent Price Art Museum, LAXART, François Ghebaly Gallery, The Box, and David Kordansky Gallery.
