Multiple Occupancy: Eleanor Antin's Selves
Eleanor Antin, born in New York City in 1935, is an influential artist and writer. A pioneer of performance, photography, film, video, installation and Conceptual art, her humorous and often tragic works are grounded in narratives that engage history, identity and feminism. This exhibition will, for the first time, focus on the videos, photographic series, drawings and installations that express the "selves" she created and embodied between 1972 and 1991. These personae include a king, ballerinas, nurses and a film director. Although decades have passed since Antin invented these characters, the issues this work engages—destabilized identity, fictionalized history, transformation and archival slippage—reverberate in art of the present day. Since Antin has lived and worked in Southern California s...
DONNA: FEMINIST AVANT-GARDE OF THE 1970sSince its inception in 2004 the Sammlung Verbund focuses on the feminist art movement of the 1970s as one of the main areas of collecting. In keeping with its maxim, "Depth before Breadth", the fruits of this particular focus are now for the first time presented in Italy. The Galleria nazionale d'arte moderna in Rome shows an exhibition entitled DONNA: FEMINIST AVANT-GARDE OF THE 1970s from Sammlung Verbund, Vienna.
The director of the collection, Gabriele Schor, has taken the initiative and deliberately designated the feminist art movement of the 1970s as Feminist Avant-Garde, in order to emphasise its trailblazing role, as it is, like no other art movement in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, a decisive force in shaping contemporary art production. The Feminist Avant-Garde is still an open field and ...
