Marina Abramovic in the MoMA atrium. In her performance piece “The Artist Is Present,” visitors sit in a chair silently facing her.

Holland Cotter has written an interesting article entitled “700-Hour Silent Opera Reaches Finale at MoMA” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times (online) looking at Marina Abramovic’s 700 hour silent performance entitled “The Artist is Present” at MoMA in New York City.  In fact, Abramovic’s 700 hour silent chair sitting is only one part of the exhibition which includes videos of some of her past performances and, perhaps more disputably, restagings of previous performances using, this time, actors instead of Ms. Abramovic and her one-time partner Uwe Laysiepen.

The article includes a slide show, here, and a video interview with Ms. Abramovic, here.  Daily live feed of Ms. Abramovic’s performance on the official MoMA site, here.  Portraits of the more than 1325 participating visitors (of the reportedly 600,000 who saw the exhibition) on Flickr, here.
