21 Tuesdays - feat. Janine Antoni & Marina Abramović (RESCHEDULED)
Free exclusive weekly screenings of episodes from the Art21 series (Art in the Twenty-First Century) followed by open and accessible discussions about the creation and consumption of contemporary art. During each session we will show two 15 minute segments featuring artists from the 7 season series. Following the screenings feel free to head back to class/work, or stick around for some informal discussion (led by a local artist) about the featured artists and enjoy coffee and sweets from Nantucket Bakery.
March 31st 11:30am - 12:30pm
Host: Eliza Fernand, Director of Shared Space Studio
Featured Artists: Janine Antoni (Loss and Desire) & Marina Abramović (History): How do artists mine the past to explore the present? How can empathy infuse a work of art with meaning? And, can it also be self destructive or painful? There is an overlap of sensuality and vicarious experiential acts that both artists employ in their performance work. Using their histories to examine the human condition, the artists in these Art21 episodes use their bodies as both subject and medium to test physical, mental, and emotional limits.
