On the occasion of her receipt of the Larry Aldrich Foundation Award, Janine Antoni presents a new series of work focusing on the cow as subject and its metaphorical relationship to the mother. This book accompanies her exhibition of this series at The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, the first U.S. venue for this work. The new works are illustrated along with a group of related earlier pieces, and the three texts that run throughout the book are a Bahaman folk tale, the litany of Virgin Mary, and a prodigious list of products that are made from cattle by-products. Also included is a handmade silkscreen using the same milk paint used on the gallery walls during her exhibition.
