The Artist is Present

Fittingly, this memorial day is also the last day of Marina Abramovic's 3 month performance titled The Artist is Present, at MOMA in New York City. This artist sits in an exhibition hall all day and invites other individuals to sit with her in silence and stillness for a period of time. As far as the logistics of her performance, that is all there is to it.  Today you can watch it live here at the MOMA website. (it just began 10 minutes ago as I write this.)  The concept of sitting in a room in silence and being present is perhaps one of the most profound and creative acts we all can do.
