Paper Dance: Motherhood, exhibition on view January 27 - February 3, 2019 at The Contemporary Austin.

The foundation of Paper Dance lies in the intergenerational relationship between Janine Antoni and Anna Halprin, whom Antoni has described as a kind of artistic mother, a mentor, and a friend. At the core of Antoni’s practice is the female body, matrilineage, feminist empowerment, and the artist’s relationship to motherhood. Her work from the 1990s tackles the subject of the artist’s mother, and Antoni’s experience of being a daughter. In 2004, she gave birth to her own daughter, and a new chapter on motherhood emerged.

In this thematic rotation, the performances and exhibition are framed around the idea of motherhood. Click here to read more.

Paper Dance: Identity, exhibition on view February 9 - February 24, 2019 at The Contemporary Austin.

Janine Antoni’s career was shaped early on by her inclusion in the controversial 1993 Whitney Biennial, a group exhibition that—in the wake of the 1980s AIDS crisis and the Reagan culture wars—thrust the term “identity politics” to the forefront of contemporary art. The biennial was reviled by critics as “rough and vulgar,” but is now seen as groundbreaking. Antoni and peers such as Glenn Ligon and Byron Kim presented work that challenged the art historical canon while tackling very personal issues around sexuality, gender, race, and culture. Since then, Antoni has continued to reference her self—particularly her body and her biography—as an artistic source.

Paper Dance: Absence, exhibition on view March 2 - March 17, 2019 at The Contemporary Austin.

Since the 1990s, Janine Antoni has utilized her own body as part of an exploration of her self, and a desire to connect with—or know—others. As much as the artist is present and visible in her own work, Antoni’s use of absence, both in concept and in visual representation, has been critically overlooked. Her engagement with this idea can be both haunting and filled with longing.
