The whole event reportedly is being filmed for an upcoming music video, and Wale, Girls' Adam Driver, performance artist Marina Abramovic (whose piece The Artist is Present famously found her sitting and meeting with visitors at New York City's Museum of Modern Art), director Judd Apatow and artist George Condo have been spotted at the Chelsea gallery for "personal performances."

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
