Janine Antoni (b. 1964 in Freeport, Bahamas) employs an amalgam of mediums including performance, sculpture, photography, installation, and video. Her body is both her tool for making and the source from which her meaning emerges. She carefully articulates her relationship to the world, giving rise to emotional states that are felt in and through the body. Janine Antoni’s work has been included in exhibitions including the Venice Biennial, the Whitney Biennial, the Johannesburg Biennial, the Istanbul Biennial, the Kwangju Biennial, the SITE Santa Fe Biennial, and the Prospect.1 Biennial in New Orleans. She received a MacArthur Fellowship in 1998, the Larry Aldrich Foundation Award in 1999, the Joan Mitchell Painting and Sculpture Award in 1998, the Irish Museum of Modern Art/Glen Dimplex Artist Award in 1996, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 2011, and the Creative Capital Grant in Visual Arts in 2012. Janine Antoni lives in New York and is represented by Luhring Augustine Gallery, NY.
