Partnership between UBS and Swiss art museum continues with London event
11/09/2017 , Cityfly

UBS and museum of modern and comtemporary art, Fondation Beyeler, are to present ‘Artist Talks: Marina Abramovic’ in London during Frieze week.

On 4 October, Ms Abramovic will take part in the new UBS Artists Talks series which launched in May 2017 as part of a 16-year partnership with Swiss-based Fondataion Beyeler.

Artists Talks aims to give audiences access to major contemporary artists, and the presentation on 4 October will feature Ms Abramovic in conversation with director of the Serpentine Galleries, Hans Ulrich Obtrist.

Ms Abramovic’s work has seen her become a ‘pioneer’ of performance art, and has laid bare the human body’s complexities, limitations, strengths and vulnerabilities. The Artist Talks event is to offer insight into the artist’s creative process and body of work.

Furthermore, the event will be livestreamed on the Facebook page of Fondation Beyeler to encourage audiences to participate with questions.

Group chief marketing officer at UBS, Johan Jervoe, said the new series will “strengthen our offer of direct access and insight into the most influential and dynamic artists working today”.

Director of Fondation Beyeler, Sam Keller, added: “Marina Abramovic is an extraordinary artist and a performance art pioneer of legendary status, she is also an exceptional and charismatic speaker. To see her live is a truly unique experience.

“Thanks to the collaboration between Fondation Beyeler ad UBS, we are delighted that we can provide a platform for the dialogue between the artist and the public.”
