Marina & the Curse of the Royal Yugoslavian Academy of Art P2

This book tells the well loved ancient folklore story of Marina, a simple traditional forest dwelling Yugoslavian mother of many children, who led a double life as a misunderstood radical performance artist.

Commissioned for a specially curated shop by artist, Marina Abramović as part of her solo exhibition at the Royal Academy from Sept 2023 – Jan 2024, the first ever solo show by a female artist in the main galleries of this historic institution since opening in 1768.  This title will tour with Marina’s show for 5 years, internationally.

With full colour illustrations and Miriam Elia’s characteristic witty storytelling style.
