Last night in the Columbus Auditorium at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Janine Antoni was present to discuss her work and answer a few questions. The artist needed little introduction to a crowd, who is no doubt, highly familiar with some of her more canonical work. Although it was a first, for myself at least, to hear her speak in person – which as it turns out, was pretty great.
The lecture essentially ran through her present slides on Luhring Augustine’s website, and was delivered in the delicate tonality that much of her work projects. Aside from a few terrible questions from the audience, it was relatively interesting all around.
The lecture was organized by the Graduate Painting and Drawing Dept at SAIC.
