Marina Abramovic, the "grandmother of performance art," has fearlessly used her body as a canvas for political and cultural commentary for nearly four decades. By making the performer (as well as the audience) both physically and mentally uncomfortable, Ms. Abramovic's works have sparked discussions about the limitations of the human body, human consciousness, human relationships and, of course, the value of performance art.
It's taken her 40 years, but performance artist Marina Abramovic says she's learned to relax the iron self-control that's at the heart of her craft.
The 24th edition of the Rio Film Festival will bring some 400 films from 60 countries to the theaters, beaches and squares of Rio de Janeiro.
Performance artist Marina Abramovic plans to build a $15 million center in upstate New York devoted to the research and production of duration-based works of art lasting from six hours to several days.
