Description

Marina Abramovic has been making groundbreaking art for 50 years, and now turns her gaze inward, to reveal her past with utter candor in a narrative guaranteed to shock and delight. After withstanding a difficult childhood, she met Ulay, a performance artist and the love of her life, with whom she collaborated for 12 years until they ended their partnership dramatically atop the Great Wall of China. Marina has performed punishing art to illustrate the courage we can find within; she's been cut, burned, and had a gun held to her head as the ultimate test between artist and viewer. Her 2010 MoMA retrospective, "The Artist Is Present," drew 850,000 visitors to sit across from her, nonverbally connecting, and she's enraptured a new generation of luminaries who've sought her as a collaborator, among them Lady Gaga, Matthew Barney, James Franco, and Jay-Z. Told with a charismatic voice, WALK THROUGH WALLS will be the one piece of Marina's art that anyone can take home."
