    Tilda Swinton comes into the Museum on certain days and sleeps in a glass box with only a jug of water. Random days all month.

    A real artist would paint eyebrows on that freaky-looking cunt.

    She never leaves the box to use the bathroom. 10:30am-5:30pm on the days she is there.

    So essentially, I'm paying a museum cover charge on the off chance that an Oscar-nominee may shit in a box?

    Seriously, the MOMA is one of the great art museums in the world. Tilda Swinton is only one exhibit. They should have hired that lazy ass Robin to sleep in a box. She doesn't do anything all day.

    Seedbed is a performance piece first performed by Vito Acconci on 15–29 January 1972 at Sonnabend Gallery in New York.

    In the piece, there is a low wooden ramp merging with the floor. The ramp extends across the width of the room, beginning two feet up the side of one wall and slanting down to the middle of the floor.

    In his original performance of the piece, Acconci lay hidden underneath the ramp installed at the Sonnabend Gallery, masturbating. The artist's spoken fantasies about the visitors walking above him were heard through loudspeakers in the gallery.[1]

    "In this legendary sculpture/performance Acconci lay beneath a ramp built in the Sonnabend Gallery. Over the course of three weeks, he masturbated eight hours a day while murmuring things like, "You're pushing your cunt down on my mouth" or "You're ramming your cock down into my ass." Not only does the architectural intervention presage much of his subsequent work, but all of Acconci's fixations converge in this, the spiritual sphincter of his art. In Seedbed, Acconci is the producer and the receiver of the work's pleasure. He is simultaneously public and private, making marks yet leaving little behind, and demonstrating ultra-awareness of his viewer while being in a semi-trance state." - Jerry Saltz

    A video of the piece itself shows no sexual content; it all is merely suggested [2]

    Marina Abramovic performed Seedbed as part of her Seven Easy Pieces in 2005.

    She ain't got shit on this guy^^^

    How on Earth did you not highlight the phrase "spiritual sphincter".

    Why is she not making movies?

    I'd like to go with a big, foam finger and beercan helmet to cheer her on...

    "Shit... Shit... Shit..."

    Apparently there's little difference between high art and a Tiajuana donkey show.

    Well, it's certainly odd and I won't pretend to understand it, but I kind of like it.

    "Little wonder she can grab some ‘z’s in front of a crowd: Swinton has been busy in the art world this week.

    On Wednesday, the actress spoke at the Victoria and Albert Museum to introduce the "David Bowie Is" exhibition. Swinton also made an appearance in a video for Bowie’s new song, “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).”

    It made me think of this great tweet from the other day by Mia Farrow's son:
