History is fiction and personal identity nothing more than historical illusion: Eleanora Antinova is the renowned US contemporary artist Eleanor Antin - Eleanor Antin is Eleanora Antinova, a black American ballerina. Shifting the boundaries between art and life this book publishes the exciting memoirs of Antinova found by Eleanor Antin. The ballerina Eleanora Antinova could be called an artist of oblivion. Years ago, the contemporary artist and femininist Eleanor Antin, found an unpublished manuscript of the ballerina's memoirs: the stories of her early modernist forgotten ballets, her romantic entanglements and her friends at the glamorous Ballet Russe with its great maestro, Serge Diaghilev. Generations later Eleanor Antin lived for three weeks in New York as Antinova. Her journal of that time brings back the now forgotten ballerina. For the first time this publication brings together the journal and the memoirs of Antin and Antinova accompanied by a selection of photographs from the performances of the artists.

From 1972 to 1991, Eleanor Antin (born 1935) created multiple personae of different genders, races, professions, historical contexts and geographic locations. The artist called this motley group--which includes a deposed king, an exiled film director, ambitious ballerinas and hard-working nurses--her "selves." The selves' manifestations were as diverse as their stories: some were embodied by Antin and captured in photographs and on video; others had paper doll surrogates; at times their existence was known only through the drawings, texts and films they had ostensibly left behind. As she explored the fleeting nature of the self, Antin used fiction, fantasy and theatricality to examine the ways that history takes shape, scrutinizing the role that visual representation plays in that process. "Multiple Occupancy: Eleanor Antin's "Selves" "is the first project to focus exclusively on this critical body of work.

Contemporary art breaks out of the confines of museums and art galleries in Season 2 of “Art in the Twenty-First Century.” Shattering the myth of the artist as an isolated genius, this unique series introduces television audiences to 16 artists working in America today. "Art in the Twenty-First Century" is the only series on television to focus exclusively on contemporary art, and it uses the medium to provide an experience of the visual arts that goes far beyond a gallery visit. Fascinating and intimate footage allows the viewer to observe the artists at work, watch their process as they transform inspiration into art, and hear their thoughts as they grapple with the physical and visual challenges of achieving their artistic visions.
