Abramovic bought the former tennis building in Hudson at Columbia and 7th Sts. "The Serbian art superstar will seek to raise $8 million to pay for the project, she revealed Tuesday night to a group of art collectors at a panel at Manhattan's tony Core Club, and the museum will be devoted to performance art pieces of 'six hours minimum.' Some of them will go on for days," the story says. "Hudson, New York, and the surrounding region southeast of the Catskills, is already something of a serious art-world hangout, with several expat galleries in town."
