Marina Abramović in focus

Join us for the launch of the 13 Rooms Film Program with a double feature focusing on the life and practice of Marina Abramović, one of the most revered artists of our time. Abramović’s name has become synonymous with not only pushing the boundaries of the human body, but challenging our conception of art.

Victoria Lynn, Director, TarraWarra Museum of Art, will introduce Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present, the eponymous documentary marking her monumental retrospective at MoMA in 2010. Following this screening, Ian Howard, former Dean of COFA, will reflect on Marina and Ulay's 1980 visit to Australia and interaction with COFA students in his introduction to Beyond the Tick Gate, the film shot at their intensive bush retreat workshop.
