Janine Antoni Lecture


Janine Antoni can certainly pull a crowd – even during SAIC’s critique week, the Columbus Auditorium was filled to capacity with an audience completely entranced by her gentle floating intonation and beautiful slides of her work.

I hadn’t heard of Antoni until this semester during my graduate seminar where she was mentioned in what seemed like every critique. Her work could certainly be relevant to anyone because it’s basically about the processes we go through in life, from separation and connection to sleeping, peeing, bathing and mopping.

She described her work simply and elegantly, with each piece’s story unfolding at a gentle pace with just the right amount of detail, reference and humour.
