Performance and conceptual artist Marina Abramovi? recently spoke with Spike Art Magazine about her 2013 partnership with Jay Z, when she assisted him in creating his own rendition of her 2010 work The Artist Is Present: the "Picasso Baby" video.
Apparently, though, the seemingly friendly collaboration was more transactional than it first appeared. "[Jay Z] adapted my work only under one condition: that he would help my institute," Abramovi? told Spike, "which he didn't."
