Join us in September as we honour Marina Abramovic Hon RA at the Royal Academy America 2017 Gala Celebration in New York City.

Marina Abramovic Hon RA has pioneered performance as a visual art form, creating some of the most important early works. The body has always been both her subject and medium. Exploring her physical and mental limits in works that ritualize the simple actions of everyday life, she has withstood pain, exhaustion and danger in her quest for emotional and spiritual transformation.

She was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale for the video installation and performance Balkan Baroque. In 2008 she was decorated with the Austrian Commander Cross for her contribution to Art History. In addition to these and other awards, Abramovic also holds multiple honorary doctorates from institutions around the world.
