Baldwin, dressed all in white, started the offer at $10,000 and eventually went as high as $200,000.

In a close-up video, posted on both artists’ Instagram accounts, they are shown milking the breast while people filmed.

The two artists claimed that Art Basel ‘fetishizes’ female breasts before beginning their performance.

“At most art fairs, nude boobs only exist in paintings, framed as dead objects. Here the breasts are bold because they are attached to a living, consenting body,’ OONA wrote in her articulation. website.

Baldwin said on her website that the play is “raising the price floor for feminist performance art.”

‘The underbelly of the art world determines which artists to milk and how much their milk is worth. In “Milking the Artist” we play with the context and its relation to value,’ he said.

The performance piece is used to question the “general obsession with objectifying women”.

Art Basel focuses on modern and contemporary art. The US show in Miami featured pieces by artists from five different continents.
