Tilda Swinton is doing a performance at MoMA recently . It’s part of an unannounced, surprise performance piece called “The Maybe” that will be taking place on random days all year.
“The Maybe” was first performed in London in 1995 at the Serpentine Gallery; Swinton conceived the performance piece, and asked artist Cornelia Parker to collaborate on the installation. Swinton later re-performed the piece in the Museo Barracco in Rome. Here’s what the museum has to say about the piece:
“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 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.”
AES+F is a collective of four Russian artists, Tatiana Arzamasova, Lev Evzovich, Evgeny Svyatsky and Vladimir Fridkes, who work with photography, video, sculpture and mixed media. The group is known for its masterful manipulation of the fashion and advertising idiom which, when combined with a deep appreciation of the history of art, produces slick yet complex and challenging narratives.
