This spring MOMA will present Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present, a retrospective which traces the prolific career of Marina Abramović. The exhibition includes the first live re-performances of Abramović’s works by other people ever to be undertaken in a museum setting. In addition, a new, original work performed by Abramović will mark the longest duration of time that she has performed a single solo piece. All performances, one of which involves viewer participation, will take place throughout the entire duration of the exhibition, starting before the Museum opens each day and continuing until after it closes, to allow visitors to experience the timelessness of the works.
Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present will be on view March 14–May 31, 2010
