Eleanor Antin will debut CARVING: 45 Years Later (2017) in Time's Arrow, a major solo exhibition that will run from May 12 - July 7, 2019 at LACMA. The Art Institute of Chicago will present the exhibition August 17, 2019-January 5, 2020.
One of the most important feminist and Conceptual artists of her generation, Eleanor Antin (b. 1935) challenged definitions of sculpture, performance, self-portraiture, and documentation with her 1972 work CARVING: A Traditional Sculpture. In CARVING: 45 Years Later (2017), the artist again documented herself as she “carved” her body, producing 500 black-and-white photographs over the course of 100 days.
Eleanor Antin: Time’s Arrow brings together both CARVING series, a new self-portrait, and a related serial work from the 1970s, provoking reflection on discipline, vulnerability, and the passage of time.
