The Artist’s Brooklyn Studio
6.30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
On Monday, May 2nd ICI will visit Janine Antoni in her Brooklyn studio. Since the early 1990’s this prolific artist has been making seminal artworks contributing to the development and history of performance and installation art. Hear from Antoni herself about the physical and personal nature of her creative process.
“She has always plumbed the psychic closet (and the medicine cabinet) for material. She has taken in social views of womanhood and literally spat them back out as symbols of cleansing. And now she offers up herself yet again as beggar metamorphosing into Phoenix to propose the durability and elasticity of the reconstituted self. Like Beuys, whom she obviously reveres, Antoni is a missionary with an occult gleam.”
