Time-based media (TBM) a prevalent and very popular form of contemporary art dependent on movement and duration as a dimension, is in the spotlight this weekend at LACMA with two fantastic installations that last 9 minutes and 24 hours respectively.

“All Day/I Feel Like That”a video collaboration from Kanye West and Steve McQueen, the video artist and director of “12 Years a Slave”, will be making the U.S. premiere of a short film for West’s songs “All Day/I Feel Like That.” The video was shot in one take in the spring of 2015 at a historic dockyard outside of London. The 9 minute video collaboration will play repeatedly during public hours for four days only, starting on Saturday at 10 am when the museum opens. Located on the ground floor of BCAM.

Since the early 1990s, McQueen’s practice has been located at the intersection of art and film. West is hailed worldwide as a Grammy-winning pop artist who pushes the boundaries of his art form, and has collaborated with several contemporary artists.

The second “TBM” piece, Christian Marclay’s masterpiece “The Clock” will run for 24 hours from Saturday at 10 am until Sunday at 9:59 a.m. in the Art of the Americas building, Plaza Level. The gallery will be open to the public after museum closing time just to view this installation. “The Clock” is a 24-hour duration montage of scenes from movies that each make a real-time reference to the actual time of day. One may drop in to see portions of the film, or stay for its entirety, at any point during the 24 hour period.

Both installations are available with a general admission ticket to the museum. Members are free. For more information, visit
