Additional Information

Eleanor Antin’s Before the Revolution explores Antin’s imaginary character Eleanora Antinova, an African American ballerina trying to make it in the great modernist Russian company of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. Performed by actors who manipulate Antin’s original life-scale puppets, the play incorporates a vaudeville sensibility into performance art, and represents a daring attempt to consider race and gender in relation to artistic mastery. Antin directs the production along with Robert Castro.

All Hammer public programs are free. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability.

Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.

Parking is available under the museum for $3 for 3 hours.
