As part of their ongoing investigation into the work of French/Swiss artist Jean Tinguely, Amsterdam’s Metamatic Research Initiative has commissioned the Marina Abramovic Institute, a singularly remarkable installation by performance artist  Marina Abramovic. MAI will be the largest expression of what the artist calls the Marina Abramovic Method. Across a series of interlocking pavilions, audience members are guided through exercises and experiences based on Abramovic’s past work. Rather than creating the performance, Abramovic empowers the audience to craft their own experience, as participants don white lab coats and headphones, and disconnect from the outside world for approximately two hours. Afterwards, they’ll be encouraged to share their thoughts about the experience via social media. Live streaming of the exhibition will extend the Marina Abramovic Institute to other locations throughout Toronto.

Produced by the Luminato Festival with the Metamatic Research Initiative.

Live streaming system developed by Digital Futures Initiatve, OCAD University.
