Well this is interesting.

At this very moment, Tilda Swinton is sleeping inside a glass box at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York as part of a surprise performance titled “The Maybe” which will take place on random days this month.

The piece was first conceived in 1995 and Swinton has previously performed it in Rome.

A museum source tells Gothamist, “Museum staff doesn’t know she’s coming until the day of, but she’s here today. She’ll be there the whole day. All that’s in the box is cushions and a water jug.”

The MoMA description of the piece reads, “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.”

What do you think of Swinton’s performance art?
