Jamie xx, Caribou + Four Tet Rock The Grand Palais [VIDEO]

The week-long Creators Project residency in Paris kicked off at Le Centquatre with a panel on the Art of Music with Philippe Zdar, Para One, and Canblaster, the same place that Chris Milk’s transformative, large-scale installation The Treachery of Sanctuary was on display all week.

We hosted Bal Blanc, the closing of Monumenta 2012, in collaboration with We Love Art, where Four Tet, Caribou, and Jamie xx played back-to-back-to-back DJ sets accentuated by Daniel Buren’s artwork with lighting by 1024 architecture.

We rounded out the week with film screenings of Laurence Anyways by Xavier Dolan and Wrong by Quentin Dupieux, plus panels with MEGAFORCE™ and Sébastien Tellier.The Creators Project

Kendrick Lamar Freestyles on Tim Westwood [VIDEO]

This was an interesting freestyle as Kendrick‘s verses have him taking on the perspective of someone during the 1992 riots involved in looting from an asian storeowner, in the second verse he touches on a situation that broke the guidelines of the gang truce.  Interesting perspectives as we have posted various stories about the L.A. Riots in 1992 here at MMXLII.  It’s also interesting to here how vividly Kendrick can articulate a time period that was 20 years ago.

Lana Del Rey – National Anthem starring ASAP Rocky [MUSIC VIDEO]

A$AP Rocky stars as JFK while Lana Del Rey plays the part of Jacquelyn Kennedy.  Just imagine an African-American president in that era?  Also very interesting to have a hip-hop artist play the part of JFK in a music video.  What do you think of this concept?

Hiroshi Fujiwara – Digest Ver. [MUSIC VIDEO]

A man of many hats, Japanese designer, producer, musician and “godfather of streetwear” Hiroshi Fujiwara returns with another display of his musical talents, this time in the form of a new music video. Focusing predominately on the musician himself, the video sees the artist performing with his guitar in a variety of settings.
