Marina Abramović: Portraits

The performance artist, Marina Abramović (The Artist Is Present) has just completed a series of sits at the Moma. While performance art can be a confusing and a seemingly convoluted exercise. I think that’s exactly why it’s interesting. And even more interesting, to my taste, is this Flickr pool that Moma has created, with the help of photographer Marco Anelli, of all the faces that sat across from Ms. Abramović. If I was to ever do a comic book, or illustrate a children’s book and needed a great face reference guide, this is as good as anything you’ll find. Lots of people weeping, lots of celebrities in there too, if that revs your engine.
