Artist Talks

Artist Talks is a program organized by the Fondation Beyeler and UBS in which internationally renowned contemporary artists speak about their work. The talks have an open, dynamic format and range from traditional artist’s talks to moderated conversations between artists and prominent figures from the art world. The Artist Talks are held at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen/Basel and at other art institutions in Europe, Asia and the USA.

Marina Abramovic

Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London, Wednesday, October 4, 2017, 7 p.m.

Marina Abramovic will speak about her work in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries, London. Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade during the early 1970s, Marina Abramovic has pioneered performance art, creating some of the form’s most important early works. The body has always been both her subject and medium. Exploring her physical and mental limits, she has withstood pain, exhaustion, and danger in her quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. The talk will be streamed live on our facebook page.

Sold out.
A number of tickets will be given away for free in a sweepstake each Tuesday leading up to the event on our Facebook page.
