Nude Models At Art Display Groped

Nude models participating in an art museum display have complained of being groped by visitors, Kare 11 said.

Performers in Marina Abramovic's new exhibition, showing at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, have been pushed, pulled, poked, and groped, the New York Post said.

Will Rawls, one of the 38 performers, said one visitor touched his butt after brushing his hand, chest, and back, Kare 11 said.

"As he was passing me he looked me in the eyes and said 'You feel good man,'" Rawls said, Kare 11 reported.

Regardless of the incidents, all of the performers said they enjoy what they are doing.

"You feel you're a part of something bigger," Elke Luyten, another performer, said, the New York Post reported.

"We are well aware of the challenge posed by having nude performers in the galleries," the museum said in a statement. "Any visitor who improperly touches or disturbs any of the performers is escorted fromt the museum by MoMA security," Kare 11 reported.

The exhibit, titled "Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present," opened March 14 and runs until March 31.
