The Royal Academy of Arts, London to Stage a Major Exhibition by Marina Abramović

Words by Carla Ingrasciotta
December 20, 2019

Running 25 September – 12 December, 2021 the exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London will be Marina Abramović’s first-ever UK exhibition spanning her life’s work – including live re-performances of iconic works, as well as brand new work for these galleries.

The show, curated together with Marina, will bring together works from her 50-year career as well as new works conceived especially for these galleries. Her new work reflects on changes to the artist’s body and explores her perception of the transition between life and death. Audiences will also engage with the ongoing debate that Abramović explores throughout the exhibition: can performance art outlive the moment of performance? ​Abramović examines the question of legacy through photographs, videos, installations and re-performances by younger performers. A programme of talks and events will accompany the exhibition throughout the duration of the exhibition.
