A man found shot to death early Monday outside an upscale apartment complex in Marina del Rey was a “courtesy patrol” team member.

NEW YORK - The reports of her death are only slightly exaggerated. The U.S. premiere Friday night of the highly anticipated, all-star, high-culture event “The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic” opened with three actors, wearing masks to represent the Serbian performance artist, lying on top of three coffins. Before the show, director Robert Wilson told a gala dinner crowd assembled in the Park Avenue Armory that he and Abramovic had wanted to work together for a long time, but it was only in 2007 that she inspired him with this request: “I want you to stage my funeral.” The three coffins, he explained, represent the three cities in which she has resided: Belgrade, Amsterdam and New York - and what followed that striking, exquisitely lighted tableau was a two-hour, 40-minute opera-cabaret-dance-oral history about Abramovic's life, from its humble beginnings in Communist Yugoslavia to her rise on the international art scene, to her “death” in 2013 (the program is a broadsheet newspaper with the headline: “Artist Marina Abramovic dies at 67.”)
