Marina Abramović
SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Marina Abramović

Exhibition: Tue, Oct 4, to Tue, Nov 1 2011

The Marina Abramović exhibition features three videos and an iconic series of photos that span the time from her first performance to her most recent works. This intimate exhibition chronicles the evolution of her performances: from her extremely physical early work to her more recent work exploring immateriality and the spiritual. Together the works showcase Abramović’s role as a pioneer in the use of performance as a visual art form.

Biography:
Marina Abramović attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. She pioneered the use of performance as a visual art form. Abramović presented her work at institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York, 2010; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 2004; State Historical Museum, Moscow, Russia, 2004; Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto, Japan, 2004; and Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France, 1990. She received an Honorary Doctorate from The Art Institute of Chicago in 2004 and earned the 2005-06 Best Exhibition of Time-Based Art award by the Association of Art Critics. Abramović won the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale.
