The Artist Is Present

post-image

Since the 1970s, Marina Abramović has been pushing past perceived limits of the body and mind, and exploring the relationship between artist and audience, through performances that challenge both herself and the participants emotionally, intellectually, and physically. She uses her own body to convey her ideas. In 2010 at MoMA, Abramović engaged in an extended performance called, The Artist Is Present. Over three months, for eight hours a day, she sat in a chair & met the gaze of 1,000 strangers, many were moved to tears. “It was [a] complete surprise…the need of humans to actually have contact.” https://www.moma.org/artists/26439

I saw this performance in NY- Brilliant! I wished I'd volunteered to sit in the middle.
