Back and Forth

At a benefit for the Kitchen, Jada Yuan talked about experimental art with designers Phillip Lim and Richard Chai.

What’s the weirdest experimental art you’ve seen in the city?

PL: At the New Museum I saw—oh, we were there together—this lady, just sleeping there.

RC: Oh, yeah!

PL: That was performance art. She was just sleeping and everyone was just walking by her, looking at her nap time.

RC: It made me realize, It’s nice someone has that much time. I’ve got to get back to work.

PL: It was like “Sleeping Through the Arts.”

RC: At first we thought that she was sick or that she must have fainted.

PL: We panicked. We were like, “Someone’s got to call 911!”

RC: And then we figured it out. I think it made me realize I probably need more sleep.


RC: I went home and took a nap.
