Pioneering interdisciplinary artists Eleanor Antin and David Antin visit the Wexner Center as part of a three-day residency at Ohio State and Columbus College of Art&Design. In addition to their lecture/performances here, they are participating in graduate seminars and meeting with students at both institutions.
As you'll see in this lecture/performance, Eleanor Antin's recent work blends history and fantasy with her trademark humor and wry social commentary.
Eleanor Antin's interests encompass a variety of media and styles including performance art, conceptual art, installation, film, and video. She has exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Wadsworth Atheneum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which featured a retrospective of her 30-year career.
Antin's groundbreaking mixed-media works such as Carving: A Traditional Sculpture (1972) and Recollections of My Life with Diaghilev (1981) are considered classics of postmodern and feminist art. She is an emerita professor of visual arts at the University of California at San Diego.
Cosponsored by Columbus College of Art & Design and Ohio StateÌs Center for Folklore Studies, Department of Art, Department of English, Department of History of Art, Department of Theatre, and Wexner Center.
