The performance art involves Shia sitting at a table wearing a tux and his now famous “I Am Not Famous Anymore” bag over his face. The public is invited to choose from a selection of props and sit across from Shia one at a time. While he doesn’t speak, the actor reportedly has shed many tears.
Shia’s show is likely a take on artist Marina Abramovic's most famous works: "Rhythm 0" and "The Artist Is Present."
In recent months, the troubled actor has been accused of plagiarism, headbutted a man in a bar brawl and stormed out of a press conference. On Sunday, he wore the same tux, bag combo to a “Nymphomaniac” premiere in Berlin.
Stars are already poking fun at Shia’s art show. See what Jerry O’Connell and Emile Hirsche had to say.
Shia will be at the Cohen Gallery through Sunday, between the hours of 11 AM and 6 PM.
