Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present

Day 10, Installation View

“The Artist is Present” is a performance by Marina Abramovic, which features her sitting in a chair at MoMA throughout the day with museum visitors taking turns sitting across from her. Some sit for only a few minutes, others for hours.
