The Artist is Present

I just finished watching Marina Abramovic's The Artist is present video on Netflix.  Having experienced the retrospective at MOMA brought me back to the time of sharing this moment with friends Jimmie and Gisella Stone and their children. The documentary was like returning to the atrium, complete with all of the emotional connections.


I had never witnessed an artist exhibit of such profound scope and interactivity.  The brilliance of the installations seem even more impressive after watching the preparation of launching this show, not to mention the life stories and journeys traveled to create each work.

At almost two hours I watched the film in two sessions in order to allow for my full attention.  I learned many new things today and I am grateful for that.

Here are a few moments of this inspiring documentary.  Available to view on Netflix or iTunes.
