Marina Abramovic’s Red- Velvet Rope:

Politics arise in a retrospective of this nature…
This article on Vulture talks of Abramovic’s performance piece at the MOMA where visitors can sit across from the artist for any length of time and stare at her. The main topic is about how everyday visitor are not able to sit with the artist as and wait up to 8 hours in line for the opportunity. Difficulties have arose because MOMA staff and celebrities make up the majority of people who actually get a chance to participate with the piece.
