This weekend, popular mythical creature Tilda Swinton re-performed her 1995 piece The Maybe at the MoMA, without making a press announcement. She slept quietly inside a glass, aquarium-like enclosure as visiting crowds swarmed outside. She has been talking about doing this at the MoMA since 2005, before Marina Abramović performed her three-month The Artist Is Present epic. She will be doing unannounced pop-up performances throughout the year, because she is magical and surprising and YOU SHUT UP.
I liked the piece as she did it in London with Cornelia Parker. It’s not a big deal. Calm down, internet.
Update: Apparently, she’s doing it today too. Calm down, internet.
