Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her limits – and at times risking her life in the process – she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ THE ARTIST IS PRESENT follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major new retrospective of her work, taking place at The Museum of Modern Art. To be given a retrospective at one of the world's premier museums is the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more: it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades: “But why is this art?”—Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present Press Book
“[MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ THE ARTIST IS PRESENT is]...riveting... you get a portrait of an artist whose life and work intertwine in ways even more compelling than might be imagined.”—Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“[MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ THE ARTIST IS PRESENT is]...a fascinating tale, because it's about something bigger than one artist. It taps into the ways that the radical underground art world got seduced by the bourgeois passion for fame...”—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
“A moving and masterfully constructed exploration of what makes art—or anything else—worth doing in the first place.” —Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
