This may be one of the most amazing debuts the art world has ever seen.

A pregnant Brooklyn performance artist is planing to have her baby in an art gallery in front of an audience as part of a piece examining childbirth.

Called “The Birth of Baby X,” the performance will feature artist Marni Kotak turning Bushwick’s Microscope Gallery into her “birthing room” where she will spend each day until the baby comes.

“I hope that people will see that human life itself is the most profound work of art, and that therefore giving birth, the greatest expression of life, is the highest form of art,” she said.
