Marina Abramović (b. 1946, Belgrade, Yugoslavia) is a pioneering performance artist. Her unflinching use of her own body as a means to explore pain, fear, spirituality, and violence has made her one of the most influential performance artists of all time, alongside contemporaries such as Vito Acconci and Chris Burden. She has also worked extensively with video, sculpture, and photography. Abramović’s work has been exhibited at Documenta VI, VII, and IX (1977, 1982, 1992) and the Venice Biennale (1977, 1977). At the 1997 Venice Biennale, she received the Golden Lion Award for Best Artist. In 2010, her work was the subject of “Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present,” a major performance retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; a feature-length documentary of the same title premiered in 2012 at the Sundance Film Festival. Abramović lives and works in New York, NY.
