Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present

I headed out to the train station, making it downtown to the Globe Theater by 7:10… time to pay for my Tuesday-deal-of-a-ticket, a big bag of popcorn and a medium sized Minute-Made orange pop.  I made it into my seat for the fading of the house lights.  Then…magic!

What a remarkable film about an amazing performing artist, Marina Abramovic.  I only wish I could have witnessed her retrospective in 2010 and been one of the people to experience her gaze!  It must have been remarkable!  Twice during the film, I shed tears…it was so dang beautiful!  I hadn’t intended to write another post today, but hoping that some of you might catch the HBO film while it’s playing in Calgary, especially if you are an artist.
