Entitled Suffragette City, Schnitger presents the New York premiere of a hybrid performance that fuses feminist protest with notions of feminine dress, manifested through sculpture and ritual. A work created to circulate among urban centers, Suffragette City at Frieze features a new quilted banner and textile installation, as well as the launch of a “whisper network,” which draws the audience into the performance.

Lara Schnitger (b. 1969, Haarlem, Netherlands) lives and works in Los Angeles and Amsterdam. Recent exhibitions include “Suffragette City”, Kunsthaus Dresden (2017); “In Real Life: Lara Schnitger”, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2016); and “Suffragette City”, FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Rheims (2015).
