The Untouchables: Groping the Art at the MoMA

Marina Abramović’s exhibition The Artist Is Present currently at the MoMA has drawn a lot of attention this year, as her provocative work normally receives. She’s perfected attracting eyes to her work for decades. Unfortunately, some people have gone beyond just looking when it comes to encountering the “Imponderabilia” part of the retrospective, in which a man and a woman stand nude and face one another in the doorway leading to the exhibition space. Touched by the roving hands of overexcited patrons, the performers of “Imponderabilia” have felt firsthand the difference between museumgoers in America and other parts of the world. Please come over to Picture This at Big Think to read more of "The Untouchables."
