Nicole Antebi

Assistant Professor

Art Bldg, Room 110
520-621-7570

MFA California Institute of the Arts (2001)
BFA University of Texas at El Paso (1998)

Nicole Antebi she/her(s) is an animator/filmmaker who makes things that move, loop, and sometimes hold. She came of age on the northwest bank of the Rio Grande/Río Bravo on the El Paso/Juárez border. The importance of movement as it concerns the dignity of people and rivers was a formative part of her childhood and the foundation of the work she does today. 

She is an assistant professor of Illustration and Animation at The University of Arizona and previously taught at CUNY Queens College, SUNY Albany, and in 2019 she was a visiting professor at la Universidad de las Américas, Puebla, Mexico. 

She is currently working in collaboration on an animated documentary about the embattled Barrio Duranguito in El Paso, Texas and Oasis (working title), a short documentary about indigenous resistance and land justice made in partnership with members of the Rarámuri community in El Oasis, Chihuahua City. The project is based on writer Victoria Blanco’s ongoing ethnographic research and generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Digital Borderland's Grant through The University of Arizona. 

She is also in the process of finalizing a four-part web series about the history, science, tools, and future of vaccines and viruses for The American Museum of Natural History with generous support from The City of New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

This summer Michelle Fricker attended the Alonzo King LINES Ballet Summer Intensive, thanks to the support from the College of Fine Arts Medici Circle donors.

#MediciMondays

Michelle is an undergraduate student in the The University of Arizona School of Dance. She took various technique classes, learned LINES repertoire and studied the concepts and ideologies that the company practices.

“I took choreographic workshops by the faculty, company members and the one and only Alonzo King and even had a performance at the end of the intensive where I got to perform work choreographed by Carmen Rozestraten.”

The #MediciScholar program helped make one of her dreams become a reality.

“Growing up, I dreamed about going to intensives just like this one but could never afford it. Going to these summer programs is vital in a dancer's training in preparation for life post-graduation. Going to LINES exposed me to a new way of moving with emphasis on a specific quality and intention that I had not prioritized in my training prior. I will forever value the connections I made with dancers and faculty and the personal growth in dance I made over the three weeks I was there.”

“I would like to thank my donors: Ms. Silverman and Judge Smelkinson! Thank you for all you do for aspiring artists like myself. I am so grateful to have been able to go to San Francisco this summer and continue my dance research which was made possible due to your donation.”
