Marina Abramovic Will See You Now

Posted By on Mon, Mar 15, 2010 at 9:33 AM

Innovative performance artist Marina Abramovic's MoMA retrospective (reviewed here) only opened to the public yesterday, but she's been at her station all day every day for a week already (and will be through May 31) for the show's only new piece, The Artist Is Present, which is also the exhibition's title. Not surprisingly, videos of the performance are starting to pop up on YouTube, as it involves sitting quietly with Abramovic in the busy MoMA atrium and trying to forge some kind of emotional connection through the noisy silence. Bring a camera and a friend, and have footage of yourself working with a legendary performance artist to show your grand-kids! It'll look something like this:


Or watch the whole thing live on the MoMA site.
