Art:21 - Eleanor Antin

art:21

2003

An influential performance artist, filmmaker, photographer, and installation artist, Eleanor Antin delves into history—whether of ancient Rome, the Crimean War, the salons of nineteenth-century Europe, or her own Jewish heritage and Yiddish culture—as a way to explore the present. Antin is a cultural chameleon, masquerading in theatrical or stage roles to expose her many selves.

Eleanor Antin is featured in the Season 2 episode “Humor” of the series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century.”
