Eleanor ANTIN: Romans & Kings

22 September - 26 October 2017

Richard Saltoun Gallery proudly presents Eleanor ANTIN: Romans & Kings, the first exhibition in London of the pioneering American Feminist filmmaker, performance and conceptual artist. 

 

A key figure of conceptual art movements of the 1970s, Eleanor Antin's ground-breaking practice spans five decades and has covered themes surrounding identity, gender, autobiography, class and social structures. Antin’s multi-disciplinary approach includes installation, painting, drawing, writing and most notably photography and performance. Rearticulating historical narratives, both real and fictitious, she explores the tropes of feminist and conceptual art. Today, as an octogenarian artist, she remains one of the world’s leading Feminist artists.

 

Her debut exhibition at at the gallery consists of recent and historical works from two of Antin’s most iconic bodies of work, including Helen’s Odyssey (2007) and The Last Days of Pompeii (2002).
