“A Privileged Window to the World of Art”

Marina Abramović

On Friday, December 18, 2020, as part of the program “A Privileged Window to the World of Art”, Carmen Reviriego talked with the Serbian artist Marina Abramović.

Abramović is a conceptual artist considered the creator of performance art. Awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 1997 and the Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts in 2022, the MoMA dedicated a major exhibition to her in 2010, which became one of the most visited in the history of the institution.

In 2023, the Royal Academy of Arts in London will dedicate a retrospective to her, the first that the institution has dedicated to a living woman artist in its 250 years of existence. The honour has fallen not to a painter or sculptor, but a performance artist.
