The 2011 Museum Of Contemporary Art Gala on November 12, 2011 in Los Angeles, California brought out a slew of A-listers to the event.
However, the evening was one bizarre night. All guests were asked to put on a white lab coat before sitting down for dinner. All thanks to performance artist Marina Abramovic‘s staging, in which performers will serve as table ‘centerpieces’ during a dinner party of 750.
The performance apparently demands that the performers endure three hours with their heads protruding through the gala’s tabletops, while being slowly rotated in circles. Meanwhile, in recreation of Abramovic’s famous Nude With Skeleton performance, fellow performers will be asked to lie upon the tables naked with fake skeletons on top of them.
