On November 19, 2015, the patrons of Park Avenue Armory in New York, postponed a dinner which was to be attended by the famous performance artist Marina Abramovic, who is absent due to serious health problems.
According to Rebecca Robertson, president of Park Avenue Armory, the artist was hospitalized urgently. The hospital, however, has not been mentioned by the press service of PR Park Avenue Armory and was flatly contradicted by the gallerist Sean Kelly, who represents Marina Abramovic. According to him, the artist suffers from blood pressure problems due to her frequent trips. But no hospitalization would have been necessary: the artist is currently resting at home where she is gradually recovering.
From 7 to 19 December, Park Avenue Armory is hosting a performance by Marina Abramovic and of the pianist Igor Levit who interprets the ensemble of the Variations Goldberg of Bach.
