About the Author
Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade during the early 1970s, Marina Abramovic has pioneered performance art, creating some of the form's most important early works. She was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale and in 2010 had her first major US retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2023 she will present the solo exhibition After Life at the Royal Academy in London, and become the first female artist in the institution's 250-year history to occupy the entire gallery space with her work.
