Antin exhibit at the ICA/Boston explores alter egos

Antin562The work of conceptual artist Eleanor Antin will be featured in “Multiple Occupancy: Eleanor Antin’s ‘Selves,’ ” on display at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Boston from March 19 to July 6, 2014.

A pioneer of performance art, Antin created and inhabited multiple characters between 1972 and 1991, including nurses, ballerinas, a film director, and a king. She documented her personae in photos, on video, and even as puppets and paper dolls. “Selves” gathers this body of work into a provocative exhibit that challenges the whole notion of how we represent ourselves in society.

Antin once said, “I consider the usual aids to self-definition – sex, age, talent, time, and space – as tyrannical limitations upon my freedom of choice.”

Born in 1935, Antin has received numerous awards for artistic achievement. She has had one-woman exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum in New York City and a retrospective at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Antin is a professor emeritus of visual arts at the University of California at San Diego.

The Institute of Contemporary Art is an easy subway ride from the Kendall Hotel – just catch the MBTA Red Line across the street. For directions, information on the Antin exhibit, and advance tickets, visit the ICA website.
