    I can't find the main verb

    see the long sentence from which I can see the subject as Pioneering figures,
    "Pioneering figures include Marina Abramovic, whose seminal early performances include "Art Must Be Beautiful, Artist Must Be Beautiful" (1975), which records her repeating this refrain whilst combing her hair vigorously and continuously for nearly an hour, directly confronting the viewer and their preconceptions about the role of art and the representation of women within it."

    Anyway, I can't find the verb to the main subject.
    can you help me?

    Re: I can't find the main verb

    The verb immediately follows the subject. It's 'include'.
