The papers of artist Eleanor Antin contain comprehensive documentation of her work and work processes throughout her career
as a pioneer in the fields of conceptual, feminist, and performance art. Included are extensive correspondence, notebooks
and sketchbooks, ephemera, thousands of photographs and negatives, and master recordings of video, film, and audio works.
A key figure in the development of conceptual, feminist, and performance art, Eleanor Antin has created an influential body
of work in an impressive range of media, including photography, improvised and theatrical performance, installation, film
and video, drawing, writing, and sculpture. Often imbued with a tone of deadpan humor, her projects deal nonetheless with
issues as serious and complex as gender, race, culture, and identity.
