The artist is present not only in the exhibition but also in the experience of the book

The artist is present not only in the exhibition but also in the experience of the book. Born in Belgrade just after the end of the Second World War, Marina Abramovic was raised in the Serbian Orthodox Church (her great uncle was a Patriarch and a canonized saint in the Church) and left Yugoslavia in 1976, having already established herself as a performance artist, living in Amsterdam and eventually New York, where she presently lives.

Since the beginning of her career, in Belgrade in the late 1960s, Marina Abramovic has been a pioneer of performance art, creating some of the most important works in the field. Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present accompanies an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art that documents approximately 50 of the artist's ephemeral time- and media-based works from throughout her career. The book also discusses a unique element of the Museum's retrospective, live performance: a new work created for the occasion, and performed by Abramovic herself; and re-creations of the artist's works by other performers―the first such to be undertaken in a museum setting. The book spans over four decades of Abramovic's early interventions and sound pieces, video works, installations, photographs, solo performances and collaborative performances made with the Dutch artist Ulay (Uwe Laysiepen). Essays by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator of Media and performance art at MoMA, and four distinguished scholars examine Abramovic's ideas of time, duration and the reperformance of performance art as a way to extend it into posterity. The Artist Is Present also includes a CD with audio commentary by the artist that guides the reader through the publication. The artist is present not only in the exhibition but also in the experience of the book.Born in Belgrade just after the end of the Second World War, Marina Abramovic was raised in the Serbian Orthodox Church (her great uncle was a Patriarch and a canonized saint in the Church) and left Yugoslavia in 1976, having already established herself as a performance artist, living in Amsterdam and eventually New York, where she presently lives.

This artist takes my breath away! I sooo wish I'd had the opportunity to see her at MOMA in NYC.

The Museum of Modern Art in New York devoted three months this year to an intensive examination of the works thus far in the career of the gifted and very important performance artist Marina Abramovic, born in 1946 in Yugoslavia an living now in New York. This book is more than a catalogue of a museum exhibition - though it is indeed that also. This very fine book, accompanied by a CD of interviews with Abramovic that aids in explaining the various performances, is filled with photographs that are stills taken form the videos of her many profound performances. Not only are the works in this exhibition new works, but there are also works form previous years re-enacted live for this survey of the artist's works. These include the some of the early interventions, the sounds pieces, video works, installations solo and collaborative performances where she is joined by longtime collaborator Ulay (Uwe Laysiepen).

Though given that it is difficult to create a static book about an artist's work that is all about tie and interaction and motion, this fine catalogue accomplishes the impossible, largely due to editor Klaus Biesenbach and contributing writers Arthur Danto and Chrissie Iles. Some of the performances will be familiar to those who follow the contemporary art world, such as the performance where Abramovic and Ulay stand naked in an elevator observing the reactions of people who walk between them. Other creative performances are captured in photographs - images of the artist's creations both during the exhibition and re-enacted by other artists during the run of the exhibition. The works are all discussed and explained, very often by the artist herself.

Although there are many books about Marina Abramovic available, this particular book captures the type of art this genius of an artist has created and continues to perform. It is a splendid addition to the library on contemporary art. Grady Harp, September 10
