Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present.

From March 10th -May 5th, the residents of NewYork and art enthusiasts from all over witnessed one of the most prolific shaman/artist of all time, in action, in their very own MOMA. During every hour of "The Artist is present" exhibition, Marina Abramovic were there, sitting at a table in silence, and museum guests could sit across from her and stare. (A great amount of people broke into tears during this experience.) Her persona, charisma, aura, or may be simply her presence, has captivated her audience with something beyond their own understanding. People left the exhibition with various responses, from disturbed to liberated, but one thing they all had in common was that they 'felt' something.
Active for almost four decades, Abramovic has contributed and shaped what Contemporary Art is today. Among the participants were some similar faces, Terence Koh, Lady Gaga, Michael Dudeck, Tehching Hsieh, and AA Bronson.
