Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia in 1946, Marina Abramović is a performance artist whose work examines the relationship between performer and audience, the limits of the body and the possibilities of the mind.

The Museum of Modern Art held a major retrospective of Abramović’s work in 2010.

The groundbreaking artist, who has pushed performance art and her body into new and startling realms, joins us days after the North American premiere of her collaboration with theater director Robert Wilson, The Life and Death of Marina Abramović, in Toronto. At 92Y, she’ll talk with Rosenthal, the curator of the controversial Young British Artists exhibition, Sensation.

Leave your questions for Marina Abramović below and we'll try to get them answered on stage during the Q&A. So get questioning:
