Tilda Swinton’s Sleeping In A Box In The MOMA
“Excuse me, sir, you’re supposed to stare at the white woman through the glass.”
“Not today. Not today…” *rests fingers on chin*
Because art is a living breathing organism that sometimes get sleepy, Tilda Swinton will randomly appear in a glass box at the MOMA without warning and let people watch her take a nap for a performance piece titled “The Maybe.” Via Gawker:
An integral part of The Maybe’s incarnation at MoMA in 2013 is that there is no published schedule for its appearance, no artist’s statement released, no museum statement beyond this brief context, no public profile or image issued. Those who find it chance upon it for themselves, live and in real-shared-time: now we see it, now we don’t.
In related news, James Franco has just announced his own piece for the MOMA titled “The Probably.” He describes it as a “bullet-time imagining of perceived reality” where he’ll randomly walk into a men’s restroom stall and cry that “those dicks didn’t ask him to sleep in a box” leaving any who chance upon him to decide to call the police should they discover he’s also masturbating to photos of himself. “I like to believe most will find it kinetic even though I have no clue what that word means and just thought it sounded cool. May I hump your coffee?”
