Tilda Swinton’s Box is Art

Tilda Swinton Box

Oscar-nominated actress and androgynous fashion enthusiast Tilda Swinton has put her box on display at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

As part of a new art installation entitle “The Maybe”, Swinton will sleep in a glass box full of cushions for museum-goers to see/not really understand. Luckily, the above image is the first to come up when googling “Tilda Swinton Box”.

Swinton’s first appearance was on Saturday when the actress spent 6 and a half hours napping in the glass box. Swinton plans to appear again but nobody knows when she’ll be back. Even the museum doesn’t know when she is scheduled to be there.

MoMA said in a statement:

“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.”

The world will soon be divided into those who have seen Tilda Swinton sleeping in a glass box and those who have not.

Art is weird.
