    City Arts & Lectures Marina Abramovic Born in Yugoslavia, Marina Abramovic is a pioneer in the world of performance art. Throughout a career that has spanned five decades, her body has been both her subject and her medium. In early works like Rhythm 10, her very first performance, Abramovic played a Russian game in which one rhythmically jabs a knife in between splayed fingers. She recorded the process and repeated it exactly, even including instances where she cut herself. The experience led her to consider the performers' consciousness, and that theme, along with bodily pain, physical limitations and intentions, and the relationship between artist and audience are formative elements in all her work. In 2010, she was the subject of a major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York entitled "The Artist is Present." A team of trained artists were enlisted to "play" Abramovic in various past performance roles, while Abramovic herself sat at a small table where visitors to the museum waited turns to sit across from her. Her life, and that exhibit in particular, were portrayed in the feature length documentary, "Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present" which made its premiere in January 2012 at the Sundance Film Festival. The Marina Abramovic Institute was founded by Marina Abramovic and will serve as her legacy and homage to time-based and immaterial art.

    Forum New State Law Defines Consensual Sex, Aims to Fight Campus Assaults Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a law that makes California the first state in the country to legally define consensual sex. The "yes means yes" law aims to improve how colleges investigate and prevent sexual assaults by requiring "an affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement" for sex. Victims' advocates are cheering the measure -- but critics say it's too broad and puts an unfair burden of proof on those falsely accused of sexual assault.
