Brooklyn Commons: Janine Antoni and Anastasia Ax International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Lecture / Artist Talk Tuesday May 14, 2013, 6:30 PM www.iscp-nyc.org
Seating is limited so please arrive early.
Brooklyn Commons, a discussion series this spring at ISCP, presents intellectual and artistic pairings between the established Brooklyn-based artist community and ISCP residents. This series puts artists in conversation who have not shared a dialogue in the past and focuses on the vibrant and diverse cultural practitioners living and working in Brooklyn, both long- and short-term.
On May 14th, Janine Antoni and Anastasia Ax will consider sculptural production in relation to process and the body.
Janine Antoni’s artwork captures the human condition in a complex and subtle way. Her work takes on a physicality that speaks directly to the viewer’s body, unleashing a deeply felt emotional response. She employs a variety of mediums to captivate her viewers including sculpture, photography, installation, and video. Born on January 19,1964 in Freeport, Bahamas, Antoni received her BA in 1986 from Sarah Lawrence College and her MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 1989. Her work has been shown in exhibitions nationally and internationally. Antoni lives in New York and is represented by Luhring Augustine Gallery.
Anastasia Ax was born in 1979 and lives and works in Stockholm. She works in a variety of media such as drawing, installation, sound, performance and sculpture. Her performance acts and site-specific installations are characterized by architectural collapse and transformations over time, and pose questions about artistic authorship and institutional control. Recent exhibitions include Imagine Death, CSV Center, New York; Swedish Energies, ISSUE Project Room, New York; Explosion!, The Joan Miró Foundation, Barcelona; and Explosion!, Moderna Museet, Stockholm. Ax was shortlisted for the Carnegie Art Award 2010.
Brooklyn Commons is organized by Kari Conte, ISCP Director of Programs and Exhibitions.
