Milking the Artist


December 2022, Art Basel Miami 

Milking the Artist (2022), is a guerrilla feminist performance art piece by OONA x Lori Baldwin. Performed at at Art Basel Miami, it went viral with a winning bid of $200K for the artist’s breast milk. The piece interrogates value in relation to women's artwork and bodies, using subversion to examine transparency and gaze. The ephemeral work was made permanent on Blockchain by minting an NFT of the glass of milk and culminated in a performative wallet wash.
