Another day, another nap for Tilda Swinton at the Museum of Modern Art. Yes, the actress/cultural oddity was back at MoMA in her glass box in New York again Monday after creating a sensation this weekend when she, unannounced, began performing her piece "The Maybe," originally devised in collaboration with Cornelia Parker, at the preeminent museum. "The Maybe" consists of Swinton sleeping in a glass box. And while museum visitors and culture critics around the world continuing to freak out Swinton's appearance, it was also slammed today by one of the most high profile art critics on Earth: New York magazines's Jerry Saltz, who sees the Swinton thing as more self-serving stunt than performance art—even if there's something to that.
Swinton-mania is still definitely going strong. There's now a Tumblr dedicated to answering the question "Is Tilda Swinton Sleeping in a Box?" The answer today was of course "Yes."
According to Gothamist, Swinton moved upstairs today to a second floor gallery, after she was on display Saturday in the Agnes Gund Garden Lobby. She also apparently got some celebrity visitors: Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick stopped by, according to People. James Franco has also been reported at the scene, but that should surprise absolutely no one—he once stared at performance artist Marina Abramovic from a chair at MoMA, and is, well, James Franco.
