NEW YORK (AP) -- Rubbing shoulders with naked strangers -- in the name of art. A new exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City has two nude performers standing inches apart. Museum visitors wanting to go through a narrow doorway have to squeeze past the nude models. For some it's a little too close for comfort. The display is part of an exhibit showcasing work by Yugoslavian-born performance artist Marina Abramovic (ah-BRAH'-moh-vich). Sometimes the nudes are the same sex, other times the opposite sex. And they aren't the only live nudes on display. Abramovic's exhibit also has a nude performer lying under a skeleton and a naked woman on a bicycle seat.
