Artist: Marni Kotak

Ever wish you could witness the “Miracle of Life” up close and in person? Well, for those that weren’t traumatized by forced viewings in high school (or happen to be straight up curious), you can watch a baby make its official debut this month at the Microscope gallery in Bushwick, New York. Pregnant performance artist Marni Kotak will be there until November 7th, kicking it with her husband, midwife, and doula in front of live audiences until her kid’s ready to pop out. Of the showcase, Kotak says, “Real life is the best performance art.” Don’t forget the tissues!
