about the abramovic studio.
The Marina Abramović Studio at Location One is a new program dedicated to promoting performance and performance art as practiced by Marina Abramović for almost four decades. Initiated in 2009, our program engages the artists in residence at Location One as well a larger community of artists and thinkers through an exciting series of workshops, panels and discussions. The "laboratory approach" supports the growth of performance art by encouraging artists to experiment with performance, promoting the works of emerging artists, and by organizing events and exhibitions using the network of people converging at Location One. All programs are curated by Jovana Stokić. Marina Abramović, one of performance art's pioneers and one of its leading figures today, is an active mentor and resource for the program's participants. This year, as in the past, the ongoing performance workshops will often be open to the public in the form of live art exhibitions, public panels, and discussions that foster and inspire critical discourse on contemporary performance art practice and related issues.
