During Paris Fashion Week in March, Kanye West screened a nine-minute, single-take video directed by Twelve Years a Slave director Steve McQueen for the upcoming SWISH songs "All Day" and "I Feel Like That." (The latter is yet to be released by West, but appeared on the leaked SWISH track list that surfaced on Reddit recently). The video will now officially debut this Saturday, 7/25, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where it will screen in a gallery for four days. (It's currently  unlisted on the museum's website, however.)

Per the New York Times, the video features West running through an East London warehouse. "[He] runs, crouches, dodges, raps, rants, sweats and pants, as if being pursued by the camera or the police or in pursuit himself, until he slumps against the wall to catch his breath. At several points Mr. McQueen's focus is so tight that Mr. West's face cuts in and out of the frame. At one point, the camera keeps its distance as Mr. West raises hands above head in a gesture of surrender.

There's currently a bootlegged snippet of the video from its spring debut, filmed at the Foundation Louis Vuitton, online. That version is only 6 minutes and a person comes in stands right in front of the camera for the last half of the video. So, yeah. Fingers crossed the clip will be released online following the LACMA exhibit.
