Janine Antoni

Visual Arts, 2012

Janine Antoni employs an amalgam of mediums including performance, sculpture, photography, installation and video. Her body is both her tool for making and the source from which her meaning emerges. She carefully articulates her relationship to the world, giving rise to emotional states that are felt in and through the body. This takes on a physicality that speaks directly to the viewer’s body. 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 included in exhibitions including the Venice Biennial, the Whitney Biennial, the Johannesburg Biennial, the Istanbul Biennial, the Kwangju Biennial, the SITE Santa Fe Biennial and the Prospect.1 Biennial in New Orleans. Along with the Creative Capital grant (2012 Visual Arts), she received a grant from the Pew Arts and Heritage Foundation in 2014, an Anonymous was a Woman grant in 2012, a MacArthur Fellowship in 1998, the Larry Aldrich Foundation Award in 1999, the Joan Mitchell Painting and Sculpture Award in 1998, the Irish Museum of Modern Art/Glen Dimplex Artist Award in 1996 and the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2011. Antoni lives in New York and is represented by Luhring Augustine, NY.
