Tilda Swinton Sleeps in Box: Is This Art?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Over the next month, attendees at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York City will be in for a surprise:

An Oscar-winning actress, asleep in a glass box.

Tilda sleeps

As co-creator of a piece titled "The Maybe," Tilda Swindon will arrive at unannounced times and lie down for all to see.

The museum itself will reportedly be unaware of when Swindon takes part in the exhibit, which will be moved all around the grounds, as explained in the following MoMA statement to The Gothamist:

"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."

Interesting. We guess.

What do you think? Should be this considered art?

maybe i'm being picky, but these articles really should be double checked/fact checked before being posted. someone mixed together "The Metropolitan Museum of Art" and "The Museum of Modern Art" and created the nonexistent "Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art."
