Jay-Z continues to set #newrules! Earlier today, Mr. Carter has descended upon Manhattan’s Pace Gallery for a six-hour performance of his single “Picasso Baby“. Some of the footage will be used for an official music visual. The moment draws inspirations from artist Marina Abramovic’s 2010 MoMA exhibition Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present. It is being reported that the visual is being directed by Mark Romanek who also directed Jay-Z’s99 Problem“. Romanek also coordinated the event along with Salon 94. Marina Abramovic, Wale, Jerry Slatz, Judd Apatow and George Condo were in attendance.

You can purchase the album on iTunes.
