Lady Gaga spent a weekend studying under Marina Abramović—the grandmother of performance art. Some art critics think this signals the end, but I think it’s great. The art scene is changing and artists have to change with it. In my opinion, Lady Gaga is an artist whose stunts are wide-reaching performance pieces for a younger generation. And if Abramović wants to mentor a younger artist, who am I to judge?
Take a look at The Abramović Method Practiced by Lady Gaga:
Gaga and Abramović’s video is part of the Marina Abramović Institute’s Kickstarter campaign. Their goal is to fund a $20 million living museum in Hudson, New York. Since the new video on Wednesday, the institute has raised $70,000 (out of $250,000 raised since July).
What do you think? Is this a way for Abramović to pander to the masses or an innovative collaboration between artists? Share your thoughts in the comments.
