    1. 3.5 stars, rounded up.Fans of 80s music, do you remember Hall Oates song, Method of Modern Love The one that went, M E T H O D O F L O V E It s the method of modern love Because of a slightly similar title to this book and nothing else , I couldn t get that song out of my head the entire time I read this I m sure those of you who aren t familiar with the song are wondering what the hell I m talking about Pardon my digression.Art fascinates me While I tend to be a fairly lit 3.5 stars, rounded up [...]


    2. Utterly fascinating I love art, all forms, all ideas, and whenever I encounter a piece of artwork I like, I try to envision what the artist was thinking as he created Oftentimes will find myself reading up on the artist, trying to understand Marina Abromovic is a controversial figure in the art world, her live art has certainly drawn attention Her expose at the MOMA in 2010, the artist is present, Drew some of the largest crowds ever at that museum A simple table, two chairs, Marina sitting Utte [...]


    3. I m not at all artistic and don t always understand art, in particular performance art, so it was with some trepidation I opened this book not realising what a treat I was in for I had never heard of the famous performance artist Marina Abramovi and her 3 month performance called The Artist is Present at MoMA in New York where she sat absolutely still for 7 hours day and invited members of the public to sit opposite her and gaze into her in the eyes No touching or movement or speaking was a I m [...]

    5. 4.5 starsI wanted to read The Museum of Modern Love since it came out a couple of years ago I finally got my hands on it, as I anticipate seeing Heather Rose this weekend at the Perth Writers Festival.I m not the biggest fan of books that bend the line of non fiction with fiction But I am a huge art lover and I find Marina Abramovic fascinating, intriguing and quite extraordinary The first time I came across Abramovic s name was by reading an article about her performance piece Rhyt [...]


    6. The Museum of Modern Love is a tender and thought provoking book Fusing fact and fiction, it centers around a real piece of performance art that was showcased at the MOMA in 2010 The Artist is Present by the Serbian artist Marina Abramovi It then weaves together the narratives of several fictional characters, all of whom attend the performance and become so captivated by it that they attempt to use Marina s art as a way to process the grief in their own lives.As someone who adores contempor The [...]


    7. This came out in Australia in September 2016 and just came out in the United States this month The author starts with the event of Marina Abramovic s The Artist is Present at MOMA and explores the artist herself in a fictional way but with permission and access to materials granted by the artist The rest of the novel is made up of the lives of the people drawn to the art Nothing much happens, and I loved it Through the various character the author is able to explore what draws people to ar This [...]
