As if “The Scream” wasn’t incentive enough to head to The Museum of Modern Art, Tilda Swinton will be hanging out in a glass box periodically throughout the rest of 2013 as part of her piece “The Maybe.” Swinton previously performed this piece at London's Serpentine Gallery and at a museum in Rome.

Two years ago, performance artist Marina Abramović had a much-buzzed-about retrospective, “The Artist is Present,” at the the Museum of Modern Art, and it’s the subject (and title) of a new HBO documentary by Matthew Akers and Jeff Dupre. For the retrospective, Abramović sat in a chair (without making a peep or getting up for anything--not even to use the bathroom) for three months. Between March and May 2010, from the time the MoMA opened in the morning to the time it closed at night, Abramović could be found at the museum, sitting in her chair. Read More
