S' From The Museum of Modern LoveShe watched as the final hours of The Artist is Present passed by sitter after sitter in a gaze with the woman across the table Jane felt she had witnessed a thing of inexplicable beauty among humans who had been drawn to this art and had found the reflection of a great mystery Museum of Modern Kindle #215 What are we How should we liveIf this was a dream then he wanted to know when it would end Maybe it would end if he went to see Lydia But it was the one thing he was not allowed to doArky Levin is a f. 45 starsI wanted to read The Museum of Modern Love since it came out a couple of years ago I finally got my hands on it as I anticipate seeing Heather Rose this weekend at the Perth Writers FestivalI'm not the biggest fan of books that bend the line of non fiction with fiction But I am a huge art lover and I find Marina Abramovic fascinating intriguing and uite extraordinary The first time I came across Abramovic's name was by reading an article about her performance piece Rhythm 0 1974 My jaw dropped to the floor Anyway back to the bookI've read this cover to cover including the preface and the acknowledgements Most of the names have been changed with a few exceptions Abramovic Ulay one of her former husbands and a couple The story centres around Abramovic's The Artist is Present a 75 day event that took place at MOMA in 2010Rose weaved beautifully this real artist's story and her art exhibition with the lives of other characters One of those characters is Arky Levin an ageing New York movie music composer who finds himself shunned away by his dying wife Uninspired and aimless he finds himself at MOMA where he’s reluctantly mesmerized by what he sees inside the suare where Abramovic sits for hours on end having eye contact with whoever sits on the opposite chair No words are exchanged just eye contact Some people can only seat for a few minutes others for half an hour or longer As time goes by Levin recognizes some of the faces in the crowd people who come back again and again to see this extraordinary event He also makes the acuaintance of a recent widow an art teacher from Kansas Together they discuss what makes something art what is its role in society Both contemplate their own relationship with art and with their life partners Another important character in this novel is the ghost of Dina Abramovic Marina’s mother who was a WWII hero and a very strict parent Through her we hear some details about Marina’s childhood and some thoughts on the former Yugoslavia Those of you who like me are not into ghosts and other such apparitions need not worry as it’s not over done it just adds some context to what and who made Abramovic Obviously one has to remember this is a fictionalised account so we don’t know the truth I personally plan to read much on Abramovic and I’m going to watch the documentary The Artist is Present very soon Those of you who are somewhat reluctant to read a book about a performance artist because you feel you don’t get it or know much about it let me assure you that this book is not highbrow in any way – it’s incredibly accessible and very readable while managing to inform and transport us into an artist’s mind and also managing to convey the importance of art and artists even when their art is not everyone’s piece of cake Highly recommended This goes towards the Aussie Author 2018 Challenge on

The Museum of Modern LoveIlm composer in New York separated from his wife who has asked him to keep one devastating promise One day he finds his way to The Atrium at MOMA and sees Marina Abramovic in The Artist is Present The performance continues for seventy five days and as it unfolds so does Arky As he watches and meets other people drawn to the exhibit he slowly starts to understand what might be missing in his life and what he must doThis dazzlingly original novel asks beguiling uestions about the nature of art life and love and finds a way to answer them. This came out in Australia in September 2016 and just came out in the United States this month The author starts with the event of Marina Abramovic's The Artist is Present at MOMA and explores the artist herself in a fictional way but with permission and access to materials granted by the artist The rest of the novel is made up of the lives of the people drawn to the art Nothing much happens and I loved it Through the various character the author is able to explore what draws people to art both observing and creating selfishness vs connection only in New York is making eye contact so revolutionary and what remains This may be one of my best reads this year Thanks to the publisher for providing me early USA access through NetGalley The book came out in the states earlier this month December 2018
