A veteran of the New York and Los Angeles 1960s art scenes, Antin is internationally known for his "talk pieces" — reflective performances mixing criticism, comedy, storytelling, and social commentary that critics have described as "a cross between Lenny Bruce and Ludwig Wittgenstein" and "a blend of Mark Twain and Gertrude Stein." In this talk, Antin reassesses the implications and legacy of Pop art, a movement he was deeply involved with from its beginnings.
