Born in 1962 in Chauny (France). Lives and works in Paris (France) .

Drawing is her medium of choice and becomes a form of daily writing, a diary. Her works oscillate between dream and reality, reminiscences and fantasies, through a rich iconographic repertory of figures, animals and objects of which roles, statuses and codes are upset..

Anne-Marie Schneider’s works have been exhibited in Grand-Hornu (Hornu), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Barcelona), Documenta X (Kassel), Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (Paris), la Monnaie de Paris (Paris), National Museum of Women in the Arts (Washington), Centre Georges-Pompidou (Paris), The Morgan Library & Museum (New York), The Drawing Center (New York), National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taiwan), Tracy Williams Ltd (New York), Taipei Fine Arts Museum (Tapei), Fundació Juan Mirò (Barcelona), Museum Tongerlohuys (Rotterdam), LAM - Lille Métropole Musée d’art moderne, d’art contemporain et d’art brut (Villeneuve-d’Ascq), Fondation Fernet-Branca (Saint-Louis), Maison Rouge (Paris), Museum Het Domein (Sittard), Museum on the Seam (Jerusalem), Oi Futuro (Rio de Janeiro).

Her work is part of prestigious collections as Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Barcelona), Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris  (Paris), Centre Georges-Pompidou (Paris), Musée des Arts Contemporains - Grand-Hornu (Boussu), Yale University Art Gallery (New Haven), The Morgan Library & Museum (New York), among others.

Schneider first gained international repute primarily for her endearing, pared-down drawings that have the immediacy of strip cartoons. Schneider?s work is at once tragic and absurd, lending it a profound psychological impact. Her intimate, articulate drawings read like diary entries. In Schneider?s work, the personal and the political go hand in hand. The drawings comment on everyday experiences, literature, political events and media images. Her rapid sketches testify to a fascination with commonplace situations. With a gentle mockery, she challenges conventions and expectations, and by doing so creates space for the imagination and for the a-typical individual. A selection of her drawings was presented in Documenta X in Kassel (1993), followed by solo presentations in 2003 and 2008 at the Musée d?Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
