Marina Abramovic's, The Artist is Present, 2001 - Courtesy of the MOMA

In my Power 100 post, I noted Marina Abramovic as an artist featured on the list. She’s, certainly, one of my favorite artist. Her pieces entail notions of self with Other, limitations of the body, and physical endurance.

Due to the write-up I’m currently working on for the La Postra Nostra collective, I wanted to keep the posts on this particular genre of art (primarily for selfish reasons – I need to focus and gain inspiration for my own writing).

New York Times writer, Holland Cotter, wrote an article titled, Performance Art Preserved, in the Flesh about her most well-known pieces. Enjoy!

Back to work!!!

Went to the Art Murmur in Oakland, CA last Friday, September 3rd. Specifically, I went to the Other Other opening curated by curatorial collective, OFFSpace. It was a great show about, well, “otherness”. I won’t get into it right at this minute but since a few more people (yes, thank you, dear friends) are keeping up with the blog, I wanted to stay connected. For now, take a look at these artists…they comprised The Other Other show…

The show will be up for some time (another month or so, I believe). Visiting the artists’ sites is a great way to get an idea of the art work being made but there’s nothing like actually seeing the work. Again, I’ll be posting more on my impressions but I definitely encourage you to check out the show, if you’re able.

The Other Other Artists include JC LenochanEric SanchezLuther Thie, and Kathryn Williamson
