See Scenes From Jay-Z’s “Picasso Baby” Video Shoot At An NYC Art Gallery Right Now

Jay-Z is taking a page out of the National’s book and is currently performing “Picasso Baby” on a loop for six hours at one of the Pace Gallery locations in NYC. But, unlike the National’s same-length performance, Jay-Z is filming the song’s music video and not turning it into a sound-sculpture. Marina Abramovic’s live installation from her recent MoMA exhibition The Artist Is Present acts as inspiration for the shoot, as Jay-Z is performing to one person while onlookers are kept at a distance from Hov and who he is performing for. A Vine taken by Complex Magazine art and design reporter Cedar Pasori shows Abramovic is at the shoot. Check out more photos, featuring Judd Apatow and George Condo, and video below.
