Serbian artist Marina Abramović’s practice spans far and wide, from conceptual pieces exploring the relationship between artist and audience, body-focused pieces, endurance art and the endless possibilities of the mind - rightfully earning her moniker as the ‘Grandmother of Performance Art’.

The Artist is Present attempts to encapsulate her work prior to her 2010 retrospective of the MoMA, New York.

Screening alongside a pop-up exhibition about women artists by students from DMU.

This screening is taking place at Leicester's LCB Depot (31 Rutland Street, Leicester, LE1 1RE). LCB Depot’s creative programme is run for and by artists, with different themes throughout the year. In February LCB's programme explores performance.
