The incident occurred two weeks ago but was uploaded to YouTube yesterday. The exhibit, which opened in March after a four-year delay, featured the work of various artists, according to Hyperallergic. One of the artists in question, Gloria Yu, claims that the woman’s selfie-fail amounted to $200,000 worth of damage. “Three sculptures were permanently damaged and others to varying degrees,” she told the publication.
According to The Guardian, the incident could have just been an elaborate piece of performance art, as the paper reports: "Some have thrown doubt on whether the accident, captured perfectly by what appears to be CCTV footage, was in fact a stunt by one or more of the artists involved." Up until now, claims of the disaster-selfie being a ruse are still unverified.
