Marina Abramovic - the Grand Dame of performance art. Exhibition and retrospective in New York

In the words of Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic: “Art can only be done in destructive societies that have to be rebuilt”. Whether or not this is true and what it means to her can currently be discovered in two exhibitions in New York City. Both engage with her life work. And she still engages us.
