Walk Through Walls: A Memoir by Marina Abramovic

In her stirring new memoir, Marina Abramović expands her repertoire as a provocative performance artist with a stirring thinkpiece that follows her from her youth in Yugoslavia to her career as an acclaimed international artist known for pushing the limits with her work. Much focus is given to her 12-year collaboration with her fellow artist and former lover Ulay. Through it all, Abramović tells of an uncompromising quest for artistic honesty, an effort that her memoir continues with the qualities that mark her role as an influencer: candidness and vulnerability. $28,
