Marina Abramovic: Then & Now

Today I was watching a morning talk show, and the hosts happened to mention a particular show at MoMA–the Marina Abramovic retropective. They were discussing a New York Times article, which mentioned a re-enactment of the performance “Imponderabilia”, where Abramovic and Ulay stood naked in a doorway of the museum–the original performance was in the 1970’s. Here we are, forty years later, and the audience is still unsure about how to approach this performance. The article can be read at the following link: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/16/arts/design/16public.html?ref=arts.
