Tickets & Prices

Marina Abramović, an art world icon and a performance art pioneer, has been captivating audiences for the past 50 years by pushing the boundaries of her body and mind.

Marina Abramović Hon RA has earned worldwide acclaim as a performance artist. Her work consistently pushes the limits of her physical and mental endurance, often subjecting herself to exhaustion, pain, and even the possibility of death.

This major exhibition showcases key moments from Abramović’s career, through sculpture, video, installation, and live performance. Some of her iconic works, like "The Artist is Present," will be vividly re-staged through archive footage.

Additionally, a new generation of performance artists, trained in the Marina Abramović method, will reperform some of her pieces.

Live performance art can be both startling and intimate. For Abramović it also has the power to be transformative. Experience this yourself through performances of Imponderabilia, Nude with Skeleton, Luminosity and The House with the Ocean View.
