One Word, Two Ways: Walk





Are you familiar with the story of performance artists Marina Abramovic and Ulay? In addition to collaborating with each other artistically, they had a lengthy relationship that they ended quite dramatically. In 1988 they each walked from opposite ends of the Great Wall, meeting in the middle for a final goodbye and continuing on away from one other.


The next time they saw each other was when Ulay surprised Marina during her 2010 MOMA retrospective ‘The Artist is Present.’  Say what you will but this one gets me every time.
