As an exhibition, Paper Dance consists of a wooden dance floor and thirty-nine crates containing a selection of Antoni’s sculpture and photography spanning from 1989 to the present, exhibited in three cycles focusing on the themes of motherhood, identity, and absence.

Antoni performs fifteen times throughout the exhibition for an intimate audience, exploring the materiality of brown paper and responding to her own artwork within the gallery.

All Paper Dance performances take place in the gallery on the second floor of The Contemporary Austin - Jones Center, 700 Congress Avenue, Austin, Texas 78701. Seating is limited for each performance. Advance tickets for performances are strongly recommended on our website. Tickets are free with purchase of museum admission (free for museum members). A number of tickets will be available on a walk-up basis at the museum front desk.
