Performances

Spanning a variety of mediums including photography, video, film, performance, installation, drawing, and writing, Eleanor Antin’s work has explored entrenched assumptions about gender and power. As one of the first artists to re-introduce autobiography, narrative, and performance back into the art world in the 1960s and ’70s, Antin created an imaginary theater of personae and mythological characters, dramatizing contemporary personal and political narratives through a kind of historical time travel. In this performance, she reads four chapters from her coming-of-age memoir Conversations with Stalin, a no-holds-barred black comedy of growing up in New York City. This event is part of a four-part series of readings across the city.

Free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays, 6–9 pm; no special tickets or reservations are required. Members enjoy complimentary and express entry to the Museum. Seating is first-come, first-served.
