Kanye West and Steve McQueen's film collaboration to have U.S. debut

Rapper Kanye West and filmmaker Steve Mcqueen's video collaboration is set to make its U.S. debut at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Saturday (25Jul15).

The Stronger hitmaker and the 12 Years a Slave director joined forces for a piece called All Day/I Feel Like That, which will run in a gallery for four days at the famed California museum.


The single shot nine-minute video was filmed at a dockyard in England, and features West as he evades being captured by an unknown entity by running through an empty warehouse.


The short film features clips of West's track All Day and I Feel Like That, both songs from his forthcoming album, SWISH.


LACMA contemporary art curator Franklin Sirmans tells The New York Times that the exhibition was made possible after McQueen was invited to the museum to give a public talk. Plans for the event fell through, so the director offered to have his West collaboration screened instead.


Their All Day/I Feel Like That piece had its world premiere during Paris Fashion Week in March (15), when it also screened for four days.
