Luhring Augustine is pleased to present a two-person booth featuring works by esteemed artists Janine Antoni and Charles Atlas at EXPO CHICAGO 2019. The presentation will include a collection of iconic photographs and sculptures by Antoni spanning the last three decades. The selection highlights the artist’s continued engagement with the human figure, often her own, through which she reconsiders the body’s traditional roles, associated tropes, and relationships to architectural space. Important examples such as Inhabit (2009) and Mortar and Pestle (1999) will be on view. Antoni’s monumental work Bridle (2000) will also be featured in EXPO’s curated program IN/SITU.
Two video works by Atlas will be on view: a new work titled Life’s A Beach (2014/2019), shaped by his 30-year collaborative relationship with Anne Iobst from DANCENOISE, and Mayonnaise Number One (1973), a silent film featuring his frequent collaborator, choreographer Douglas Dunn, improvising from a painting by Édouard Manet. Atlas’ work will also be featured in EXPO’s OVERRIDE project, with a billboard of his iconic Mrs. Peanut Visits New York (1999). Additionally, at 4 pm September 21st, Atlas will be in conversation with ARTFORUM Senior Editor Jennifer Krasinski at the Navy Pier as part of EXPO CHICAGO's “Dialogues” series.
