Hint Tip: Marina Abramović @ MoMA

Get thee to MoMA for an eyeful—or a handful, if you’re lucky—of full-frontal provocation, courtesy of the reigning madam of performance art, Marina Abramović. The current retrospective (on view through May 31) chronicles her saucy misadventures, which usually involve wearing minimal clothes, and a minimal amount, while making the audience as uncomfortable as possible. The sprawling show has become quite the hotbed, with enough flesh on display to placate a sex-addicted golfer. Highlights include recreations of seminal performances from the 70s, including the famous passageway piece consisting of a nude couple (of various gender combinations) that viewers are forced to squeeze through. Bring your own Purell.
