Marina's LA MoCA bash

More details have come to light about Marina Abramovic’s plans for the prestigious annual gala at Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art on 12 November, which the performance grande dame will oversee. “As artistic director, Marina plans to re-enact some of her most famous performance art pieces as well as serve as a master of ceremonies, directing gala guests in a series of participatory activities as they experience the installations, décor and dinner… the evening will consist of musical guests as well as a surprise finale,” according to the museum. The fundraising event has become something of an art world performance extravaganza, with artist Doug Aitken and songstress Lady Gaga participating in previous years.
