Performance Artist Gives Birth To Baby Boy In Gallery
NEW YORK - A performance artist who said giving birth is the "highest form of art" has delivered a baby boy — inside a New York City art gallery.
The Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn said Marni Kotak gave birth to a healthy infant, weighing 9 pounds, 2 ounces, and 21 inches long.
The 36-year-old artist had set up a home-birth center at the gallery, turning the space into a brightly decorated bedroom with ocean blue walls and photo-imprinted pillows.
The gallery said in a statement that "Baby X" was born at 10:17 a.m. Tuesday. It didn't say how many people witnessed the birth or give any other detail.
The gallery said a video of the birth will be added to its upcoming exhibition.
