Retrospective Marina Abramović at the Stedelijk

The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam opens its doors for an exceptional exhibition dedicated to the pioneering performance artist Marina Abramović. The exhibition, titled "Marina Abramović," offers an in-depth and retrospective look at Abramović's impressive body of work, from her early works from the 1970s to her recent groundbreaking projects.


The exhibition immerses visitors in the intriguing world of Abramović's performance art, focusing on the relationship between the performer and the audience, the boundaries of the physical and mental, and the transformative power of art. One of the highlights of the exhibition is the reconstruction of her iconic work "The Artist is Present," where visitors will have the opportunity to live the intense experience of direct interaction with the artist herself.

Marina Abramović is known worldwide for her radical and provocative performances, which often revolve around themes of endurance, pain, and the essence of being. Her artworks have profoundly influenced the art world and opened new avenues in contemporary art practice.

"With this exhibition, the Stedelijk Museum offers a unique opportunity to experience the evolution and impact of Marina Abramović's oeuvre," said Stedelijk curator Yvette Mutumba. "It is an honor to bring together her groundbreaking works and give the public the opportunity to discover the power and significance of her art."

In addition to reconstructions of her most famous works, the exhibition also presents an extensive selection of documentation, videos, photographs and personal archives that provide a deeper insight into Abramović's artistic process and her influence on the contemporary art world.

For lovers of contemporary art and performance art, the exhibition "Marina Abramović" is an event not to be missed. Visitors are invited to participate in this special journey through the life and work of one of the most influential artists of our time.
