The following CNN art news video is about an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City. The exhibit has actress Tilda Swinton sleeping in a glass box. This video was added to the CNN website on March 25, 2013.
Tilda just sleeps for 7 hours a day in this glass box. I guess it’s comfortable enough. Swinton has a mattress, some sheets, and a pillow. A nightgown would have been a nice touch. But Tilda is seen in this video sleeping in a button-down shirt and a pair of jeans.
In addition, Swinton does not talk or do any other kind of acting. She just lies there and sleeps.
So this is art? All it does is prove that artists who are successful are the ones who get lucky. This exhibit wouldn’t win your average 5th grade art contest. The judges would say it is too simple and isn’t really art.
