Marina Abramovic’s newest piece in her continuing ‘The Artist is Present’ exhibition features her competing in an epic artistic staring contest. Okay, maybe it wasn’t intended to be a staring contest, but it often turns into one.

The latest piece in ‘The Artist is Present’ features guests of the MoMA (Museum of Moder Art) sitting across a table from Abramovic. Some people sit for a few minutes, others sit for a few hours. It’s fascinating to see how long someone can sit and stare at a complete stranger. Check out the video to see how this super staring contest came to life.
