No touching the artwork

What is it about a sign that says ‘Keep Of The Grass’ or ‘Do Not Touch’ - your human instinct is too immediately touch it. Unfortunately this was exactly what has happened at the latest exhibition at New York’s Museum Of Modern Art (MoMA) gallery where visitors have been thrown out for touching the artwork.

'The Artist Is Present' showcases a series of nude stationary people and some of the performers have been complaining because pervy passers by can’t resist but give them a cheeky grope. A museum spokesperson said: ‘We are well aware of the challenges posed by having nude performers in the galleries for this exhibition but any visitor who improperly touches or disturbs any of the performers is escorted from the museum by MoMA security’.

Amelia Uzategui Bonilla, who is one of the nude models said: ‘we have a way to let security know if we're having an emergency, but we're all prepared for discomfort. You just have to suck it up!’

Suck it up? By jove, when’s it coming to London?
