This Saturday, during the first weekend of the New Directors/New Films festival at New York's Museum of Modern Art, it was announced that indie queen Tilda Swinton would be bringing back a 1995 performance that debuted at the Serpentine Gallery in London and went on to be performed in Rome and Paris. In the performance, "The Maybe," Swinton lays in a glass box with a sheet-covered mattress, pillow, eyeglasses and water.

This Saturday, during the first weekend of the New Directors/New Films festival at New York's Museum of Modern Art, it was announced that indie queen Tilda Swinton would be bringing back a 1995 performance that debuted at the Serpentine Gallery in London and went on to be performed in Rome and Paris. In the performance, "The Maybe," Swinton lays in a glass box with a sheet-covered mattress, pillow, eyeglasses and water.

MoMA curator Klaus Biesenbach, who has kept a high profile recently after bringing Kraftwerk and Marina Abramovic to the museum (he is featured heavily in Matthew Akers' film "Marina Abramovic The Artist is Present."), worked with Swinton to mount her work this year at the MoMA.

According to a report from Gothamist, Swinton will show up unannounced for a day at a time at the museum and museum staff will not know she is there until the day of a performance. Filmlinc Daily, the online publication for the Film Society of Lincoln Center, is reporting that Swinton will be performing "The Maybe" until November.  The Gothamist article today did note that Biesenbach has been in talks with Swinton for seven years to bring "The Maybe" to the MoMA.

Without further ado, the answer to the question, "Is Tilda Swinton sleeping in a box at MoMA today?"
