Night Sea Crossing, a lecture
Guggenheim Museum, New York
Tuesday, April 7, 6:30pm
The celebrated performance artist Marina Abramović discusses the twenty-two Night Sea Crossing performances (1981-87) created with her former collaborator, Ulay (Uwe Layesiepen) after the artists had returned from a long period in the Australian outback. Night Sea Crossing is among Abramović's earliest tableaux pieces that layers time, presence, and mindfulness into a collaborative moment for viewer and performer.
Lecture in conjunction with the exhibition The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860 – 1989 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
