Carrie Schneider


Carrie Schneider (b. 1979, Chicago) is based in Brooklyn and Hudson, New York. Schneider is co-represented by CHART and CANDICE MADEY.  In March 2023, she will open a major museum solo exhibition at MASS MoCA, curated by Susan Cross.

Schneider’s work challenges the camera’s presumed capacity for documentation and exactitude, employing multiple exposures, light bleeds and obstructions to express an associative collection of images and influences. These photographs, each a unique print, were created with a lens-less camera by exposing existing images directly to photographic paper. The process allows ample space for failure and discovery, and share the aura of mystery often associated with early experiments in photography, but rediscovered using the visual vocabulary of social media, pop culture and art historical references.


She has presented her photographs and videos at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki, Galería Alberto Sendros, Buenos Aires, santralistanbul, Istanbul, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Pérez Art Museum Miami, The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, The Art Institute of Chicago, and The Kitchen, New York. 


Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, ArtForum, VICE, Modern Painters, and The New Yorker. She received a Creative Capital Award, a Fulbright Fellowship, and attended the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Independent Study Program and Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. She received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh. Carrie serves on the board of A.I.M by Kyle Abraham and lives in Hudson and New York City.
