We are going to mix in and out of the press release and our own thoughts her. Last week at a three-day retreat in upstate New York, famed artist Marina Abramovic instructed super pop artist Lady Gaga in the Abramovic Method—a series of exercises designed to heighten participants' awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment. The workshop was part of a promotion for Abramovic's new Kickstarter for the Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI), which will be the first space dedicated to practicing the Abramovic Method, which prepares participants to both perform and observe long durational work.

Marina Abramovic Institute is dedicated to the presentation and preservation of long durational work, including that of performance art, dance, theater, film, music, opera, and other forms that may develop in the future. MAI will foster collaboration between art, science, technology, and spirituality, bringing these fields into conversation with long durational work. MAI will provide an educational space to host workshops, lectures, residencies, and research.
