Book about the Serbian performance artist, Marina Abramovic (b. 1946) and her overall practice, by the English art critic and museum director, Ossian Ward. Abramovic is pioneering performance as a visual art form. She will be known to many Louisiana visitors from, for example, the museum's large exhibition with the artist in 2017, The Cleaner, with, among other things, the intensely discussed performance, where a doorway in the exhibition was flanked by a naked woman and a naked man, which the audience could pass between.
Marina Abramovic's work - one of contemporary art's most radical and uncompromising practices of endurance, pain and intense physical encounters - has pushed the boundaries of contemporary art and cemented her reputation as one of the most significant artists of the past 50 years.
