Marina Abramovic Institute
Building design by OMA
The mission of the Marina Abramović Institute for the Preservation of Performance Art (MAI) is to cultivate new kinds of performance while functioning as a living archive, preserving and hosting performances of historic pieces. Abramovic plans to use the space as a laboratory for exploring time-based and immaterial art - including performance, dance, theater, film, video, opera, and music - through collaboration with practitioners in the realms of science, technology, and education.
The first phase of MAI’s development was funded through Kickstarter. The building will be designed by OMA in a former theater in hudson, new york.
