Marina Abramović in Revered and Feared: Feminine Power in Art and Beliefs

A journey through 5,000 years of spiritual power beliefs:

With sculptures, sacred objects and works of art from various continents and from the ancient world to the present day, this exhibition shows us how goddesses, demons, saints and other spiritual beings have played a relevant role in our understanding of the world . From wisdom, passion and desire to war, justice and mercy, a cross-cultural journey takes place through different expressions of feminine spiritual powers around the world.

The British Museum's selection of 154 pieces, in dialogue with a selection of renowned contemporary artists, invites us to reflect on female power and femininity today.
