I love getting art recommendations from non-art history majors. I find it fascinating to see what people who don't study art all day really like. One such culturally savvy friend recently directed me to this article. It is a review of the (I think) fabulous Marian Abramovic installation that took place in the MOMA in the spring. Check it out, it's a quick read and a great overview of her work.
My questions are threefold: 1) Do you like the piece? 2) What would you have done if you had been face-to-face with Marina? 3) Are there any recent exhibitions/installations/events that you would have loved to see but just didn't have the $$ for?
P.S. My answers are as follows: 1) Yes, obviously. 2) I think I would have sat done and gotten up pretty quickly because: I am not that patient, I still have problems sitting still, and I would want to give others a turn. I would probably just say "thank you" and leave. 3) I kick myself everyday that I didn't do an impromptu fly-away to see Christo and Jeanne-Claude's The Gates. Next time.
