Studio Conversations: Janine Antoni

Janine Antoni with Janet Kaplan and Jonathan Wallis

Janine Antoni's artwork engages the viewer on a profoundly physical level. Her own body is present in relationship to extreme process and unusual materials. She has received a MacArthur Fellowship, the Larry Aldrich Foundation Award and the New Media Award from the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art, among others. She has been profiled in countless publications including Art in America, and her work has been included in exhibitions including the Venice Biennial and the Whitney Biennial. Janine Antoni lives in New York and is represented by Luhring Augustine Gallery.

Janet Kaplan is Program Director of the BFA in Curatorial Studies and Professor of Art History at Moore. The former editor of Art Journal, she is the author of Unexpected Journeys, The Art and Life of Remedios Varo. 

Jonathan Wallis is Assistant Professor and Chair of Art History at Moore. He has published in journals and books on Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Mariko Mori, and Jackson Pollock, and focuses generally on the intersections of spirituality, technology and performance in post-1945 art.
