It looks like Jay Z's "Picasso Baby" performance art video will finally be released on August 2 at 11 p.m. on HBO. After filming it to a live audience at Pace Gallery in New York on July 10 (to art world figures like Lawrence Weiner, Jerry Saltz, Laurie Simmons, and Marilyn Minter) and doing a special segment with the queen of performance art herself, Marina Abramovic, he's made a final product that's ready to be shared.
In the trailer, Jay says, "Rap is thinking out loud. You're putting your fears, your vulnerabilities, and your insecurities to music. Concerts are pretty much performance art, and a smaller video is a little more intimate, so you feel the energy of the people." Watch it below.
