In an endeavor to transmit the presence of the artist and make her historical performances accessible to a larger audience, the exhibition includes the first live re-performances of Abramovic’s works by other people ever to be undertaken in the setting of a museum. In addition, a new, original work performed by Abramovic will mark the longest duration of time that she has performed one solo piece.

All performances, one of which involves viewer participation, will take place throughout the entire duration of the exhibition, starting before the Museum opens each day and continuing until after it closes, to allow visitors to experience the timelessness of the works.

A chronological installation of Abramovic’s work will be included in The Joan and Preston Robert Tisch Gallery on the sixth floor of the Museum and will show the different modes of representing, documenting, and exhibiting her ephemeral, time-based, and media-based works.

The exhibition is organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue that includes an audio recording of the artist’s voice guiding the reader through the publication.
