The Artist is Present

In a career spanning more than 40 years, legendary performance artist Marina Abramović has led her viewers into groundbreaking and often alarming artistic territory. Positioning her body as the art object, Abramović’s work provokes and confronts what humans fear the most, vulnerability, destroying the lines between audience and spectacle and performance and life. As part of a “Behind the Scenes” film series, the museum will screen the film documenting her most ambitious work to date, a three-month-long, silent sit-in at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The series complements the current “Tools of the Trade” exhibition.
