Diane Rosenstein Fine Art is pleased to announce Eleanor Antin: Passengers, a solo exhibition of drawings, photographs, and découpages by this iconic and influential pioneer of Conceptual art. Eleanor Antin: Passengers opens Saturday, April 12th, with a reception for the artist from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This is Antin’s first exhibition with the gallery.
Eleanor Antin, who is based in San Diego, uses fictional characters, autobiography, and theatrical narrative to examine the ways that history takes shape, and also to scrutinize the role that visual representation plays in that process. For this show, the artist reflects on recurring motifs in her work to design an installation that engages the existential themes that run through her historical narratives. The title of the exhibition -- “Passengers” -- provides a conceptual framework.
