KANYE WEST x STEVE MCQUEEN Pop-Up Installation at LACMA

Dear Diary,

It was pretty awesome being at the LACMA for Kanye West and Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen’s short film.  The duration of the film was 9 minutes, and shot in one take at a historic dockyard outside London. Despite my  inability to share  some images from the installation with you all, per Mr. West’s strict regulations of keeping the video exclusive to the museum, I want to compensate by leaving you with a quote from the director elaborating on the concept of the film ; “The video for Kanye West ‘s song All Day/I Feel Like That plays upon the relationship between the camera and the subject. As in a meeting between the bull and the matador, it remains unclear who chases whom within the arena. The roles of pursuer and pursued are at times inverted. Shot in a single 9 minute take with natural lighting and minimal context, McQueen accentuates the immediacy and intensity of the performer up close. Every movement of West is seen; every breath felt. It becomes apparent how the song itself fuels West’s performance, from the tornado in “All Day” to the vulnerability of I Feel Like That”
