Mark your calendars: As part of the Art21 Blog’s current Flash Points topic on storytelling, artist Eleanor Antin will take over the @Art21 Twitter account to perform a very special reading this Friday, October 26, from 2:00–3:00 p.m. EST.
Through posts of 140 characters or less, the artist will “read” stanzas of a story from her memoir, Conversations with Stalin, before embarking on four additional performances throughout New York City.
This will be the first time that we have invited anyone—let alone one of our featured artists—to speak through our Twitter account. Likewise, this will be Eleanor Antin’s first-ever “social media” performance. Needless to say, we appreciate your participation and feedback!
>From 2:00–3:00 p.m. EST this Friday, follow along with @Art21 and the hashtag #AntinCWS, ask questions, and see what else Eleanor Antin has to say.
