Performance at MoMA

We recently stumbled upon this performance art by two women in red jumpsuits at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. We didn’t get the details, but the performance was a kind of feminist protest against the museum in regards to women artists.

The Artist is Present

Below are still images from “Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present,” a 2012 documentary about legendary performance-art star Marina Abramovic. We stumbled upon a re-broadcast of the film doc on HBO a couple of weeks ago and watched it again for a second time. As an artist, Marina is controversial, and critics and the public had mixed feelings about the sensational, provocative 2010 MoMA retrospective of her work. The documentary is about her career and the months of preparation for the MoMA exhibition, as well as the days throughout the run of the show itself.
