Featuring photographs and films made between 2006 and 2015, Nine Trips around the Sun offers a survey of what Carrie Schneider (born 1979) describes as ďdocuments of something performed for the camera,Ē and demonstrates the range of lens-based processes she has employed. Included is Schneiderís entrancing recent series Reading Women, for which the artist photographed and filmed 100 individual female artists, curators, writers and musicians in their homes and studios as they each read a book of their choosing by a woman author. The project resulted in 100 intimate portraits and a four-hour film. Published in conjunction with Schneiderís first comprehensive survey exhibition, this volume--the artistís first monograph--includes essays by Julie Rodrigues Widholm and Joanna Szupinska-Myers, and an interview with the artist conducted by exhibition curator Kendra Paitz.
