Marina Abramovic In Conversation with Klaus Biesenbach and Marco Anelli
October 16: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Join us for a closer look into one of Marina Abramovic’s latest works, “The Artist is Present” which is now documented in a book of photographs by Marco Anelli, called Portraits in the Presence of Marina Abramovic. The performance occurred within the walls of MOMA in the midst of the retrospective of her work in 2010. Along with the curator of the show, Klaus Beisenbach, who is also the current director of MOMA PS1 and the Chief Curator at Large at MOMA and the photographer Marco Anelli, we’ll learn about how this 736 hour and 30 minute static, silent piece came into being and was actually pulled off.
Admission available with purchase of Portraits in the Presence of Marina Abramovic. (Gift card option: sold out.)
Buy a copy of the featured book at the registers or at the door in order to attend this event. All options admit one person. The event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street
