Marina Abramović Institute Apologizes to Jay-Z

Home / Single Post

Marina Abramovic’s statement about Jay-Z not holding up to his end of the deal by donating money to her institute sent the art and music world into a whirlwind of confusion and disbelief.images

Abramovic spoke a bit too soon or more so she was misinformed… more like not informed at all.

The Marina Abramovic Institute issued a press release apologizing to Jay-Z for bad record keeping and lack of communication. The release stated that Abramovic was not informed of the payment that Jay-Z made two years ago, before she did the interview with Spike Magazine in Brazil. They apologized to Abramovic and Jay-Z and plan to take action to reconcile the issue.

Now maybe the “cousin” – as Jay-Z put it – Hip Hop and art can coexist once again.
