Jay-Z just wrapped(rapped) a demonstration of his take on modern art…by lip-syncing his song “Picasso Baby” for 6 hour at New York’s Pace Gallery. Watch.
According to The Fader, this “docu-music video” is partly inspired by Abramovic’s 2010 Museum of Modern Art exhibit “Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present” in which she sat in MoMA’s atrium for 736 hours total and invited anyone willing to wait to sit across from her. This is one of the “6 pieces of art” Jay-Z recently teased. People were invited to participate in hour slots of Jay-Z’s performance.
