Culture Connection: Cultural “Snacks” Online (VIDEO)
· November 14, 2013
From time to time I find myself grazing the internet like a cow in search of a snack. Just a little something to distract me from the task at hand. Something that can provide a momentary taste of inspiration or awe! Today’s culture connection is dedicated to cool stuff I’ve found on the internet that represents artistry, innovation and wonderment! I hope you enjoy!
Next, Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again.
At her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, where she shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened. All I can say is wow!
