Janine Antoni is known for making art that references her own body - part performance, part sculpture, part high concept. On Wednesday at 6 p.m. the Phillips Collection will present a lecture by the artist, whose career highlights include a 1993-94 series of classical self-portrait busts sculpted out of chocolate and soap - then partly licked and lathered away by Antoni - along with more recent photographs (such as the 2009 "Inhabit," pictured above) on the theme of domesticity and motherhood.

At 1600 21st St. NW (Metro: Dupont Circle). 202-387-2151. www.phillipscollection.org. Admission to the talk is $10; $5 for museum members; free for students and members of the Phillips International Forum. Registration required. Although the talk has sold out, a limited number of standing-room tickets may be available at the door. A podcast of the talk will be posted on the museum's Website after the event.
