Lillian Schwartz: Whirlwind of Creativity
Lillian Schwartz: Whirlwind of Creativity is a career-retrospective exhibition showcasing the groundbreaking work of multimedia artist Lillian Schwartz.
Recognized for existing at the forefront of the digital art movement in the late 1960s, Lillian Schwartz broke barriers throughout her career in a field that was heavily dominated by men. Eager to bridge art, science and technology, Lillian worked at a time when artists were forced to defend computer-based artwork as a viable medium — while also actively trying to push its boundaries.
Featuring over 100 artifacts, Lillian Schwartz: Whirlwind of Creativity explores three core themes across the artist’s life and career, including rarely shown mixed-media works, studio equipment, and large-scale film and video projections.
