BitchTapes: Songs About Art

Earlier this summer, Jay Z invited a small audience of cultural heavies—among them Marina Abranovic, Michael K. Williams, and Jerry Saltz—to a New York gallery for a six-hour performance of his new song "Picasso Baby." It wasn't the first time music and fine art have mingled, and it won't be the last. From the Velvet Underground at Andy Warhol's Factory to Jean-Michael Basquiat's start in the world of grafitti, music and art have been heady, fruitful bedfellows for as long as we know. This week, Kristin Rogers Brown and Andi Zeisler pulled together a selection of their fave songs about art and artists for your listening palette.
