The details (from wikipedia)


Hermine Freed (May 29, 1940 New York City – November 21, 1998 New York City) was an American painter and video artist.

Life and work

Freed studied painting at Cornell University and New York University, where she taught starting from the late 1960s. In 1972 she became a professor for video art at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 1967, she married the architect James Ingo Freed (1930–2005).

Initially she filmed artist portraits, beginning with James Rosenquist. Although WNYC did not broadcast the portrait, she was not discouraged and produced a whole series. Apart from her documentary work she created videos that artistically negotiated female subjectivity and self-perception. In 1972 she participated in the exhibition Circuit: A Video Invitational at the Everson Museum of Art, curated by David Ross. Two Faces (1973) and Art Herstory (1974) are two of her most notable works.
