American artist Lisa Levy organized a performance against hypocrisy in the art world. She spent two days sitting naked on a toilet in Christopher Stout gallery in NYC. Any visitor could sit on the toilet in front of her and do anything they wanted except touch her. Levy called her performance 'The Artist Is Humbly Present', parodying Marina Abramovic's 2010 performance The Artist Is Present in MoMA in NYC. During the performance, everyone could sit in front of Abramovic and look her in the eyes. The performance lasted for 29 days.
