Making Money

Robert Boyd

Marina Abromović and Ulay, Rest Energy, performance, 1980
"[Marina] Abromovic is from the generation of artists who matured in the 1970s--the artists who didn't want to sell anything. They had contempt for the market which many of them, now saddled with mortgages and dependents, have come to regret. But Abromovic has pretty much stuck with the immaterialist values of that idealistic age." (Thomas McEvilley, "Marina Abromović: Speaking Silences, Carrying Water" in The Triumph of Anti-Art, 2005)
I think Abromovic has done all right for herself in the end, hasn't she?
