Eleanor Antin, Conversations with Stalin
May 11, 2012; 7:30 p.m.; Gallery BRSVP on Facebook
Programmed by Constance M. Lewallen
Doors 5:00, RE@DS: Laura Durback 5:30, Artists' Gallery Talks 6:30
Eleanor Antin credits her idiosyncratic first-generation Jewish immigrant family as well as Stalin himself for the desperate and often-hilarious quests for art, self, revolution, and sex that fueled her childhood and teen years. This evening, she reads from Conversations with Stalin, her no-holds-barred coming-of-age memoir, performed in the spirit of the irrepressible Dorothy on the road to Oz.
Prior to her performance, Antin and fellow State of Mind artist Tom Marioni talk informally in the exhibition galleries at 6:30 p.m.
