We've heard of musicians doing encores of a song at the end of a concert, but never an entire concert of the same song for 6 whole hours!

Jay Z appeared in a recently unveiled trailer for Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film, a collaboration he did with HBO.

In the documentary, Jay Z performs the song Picasso Baby from Magna Carta Holy Grail at New York's Pace Gallery for 6 straight hours as performance art. Talk about working HOVA-time!

In attendance are Alan Cumming, Judd Apatow, and Marina Abramovic, all of whom seem to be having a pretty great time in the trailer! Usually when you think of celebrities doing performance art, we think of say, Tilda Swinton taking naps in a box, but this seems pretty engaging!

On rap and art, Jay Z had the wise words to say:

"Rap is painting out loud. You're putting your fears and your own abilities and your insecurities to music. Concerts are pretty much performance art. In a smaller venue it's a little more intimate, so you feel the energy of the people."

Hmm, we wonder if losing the hyphen was an act of performance art too?

Anyway, August 12th can't roll around soon enough, as Picasso Baby looks like an interesting breakdown of performance art!

    The band The National did VERY thing about 3 months ago, with their song "Sorrow" at PS 1 in NYC. Jay Z's idea is far from innovative.
