Antin (Eleanor) Papers

Container List

Series I. Correspondence, 1965-2009, undated 2.92 Linear Feet (7 boxes)
Correspondence regards primarily the production, presentation, and reception of Antin's work. Antin's letters are characterized by detailed descriptions of situations and people and a boisterous insistence on recognition. A memorable missive berates and threatens the faculty of the University of California, San Diego, for being reluctant to hire her. Where letters from the 1970s reflect Antin's struggle to gain acceptance and acclaim for her work, letters from the later decades are more concerned with organizing exhibitions and screenings.
Arrangement
Arranged by decade, and within each decade in alphabetical order by the correspondents' last names and may include letters sent and received. Cards are arranged by date only, as the correspondents are generally not identifiable.

Series II. Notebooks, 1970-2001, undated 3.75 Linear Feet (9 boxes)
Notebooks span three decades and contain notes, sketches, bits of dialogue, and planning for various Antin works, mixed in with personal reflections, art world gossip, lists of tasks, drafts of letters, and other quotidian material. They often chronicle works throughout their process of development. Sketchbooks show her thought process as she develops works, including some early drawings blocking out compositions for 100 Boots, and extensive drawings for projects such as Angel of Mercy and Man Without a World. Drawings of female figures with abundant, messy hair occur throughout the notebooks.
