"But why is this art?" This is a question that performance artist Marina Abramovic has been hearing over and over for the past 40 years as she uses her body to push boundaries and open minds.
Director Matthew Akers (LOCKDOWN, USA) profiles Abramovic as she prepares for her show The Artist is Present. She discusses her project and what it means to be shown at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and expands on her body of work and the way that audiences have received it.
As The Artist is Present opens, and celebrities, artists and the public flock, we are invited to think about art in a grander sense.
