Take a break from any important issue that is happening in real-time right now across our nation and pay extra close attention to the fluff of this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach! The art world is quickly making its way to mainstream media, making artist themselves basically brand powerhouses. Nobody is doing this better than the queen of hyped performance art, Marina Abramović.

Forget Paris Hilton, Marina is hitting the party rounds harder than a newly legal Jenner during Paris Fashion Week. She’s mastered the act of performance art and we’re now left wondering if she uses those talents to balance a glass of bubbly in one hand while snapping a selfie with Kim Kardashian in the other. See below why it is highly appropriate to dub Ms. Marina Abramović the biggest socialite of Art Basel Miami Beach.
