Kanye kick it? Rapper West rocks the Hayward Gallery with secret gig

Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album covers

All the talk at the opening of George Condo’s Hayward show on Monday was not how lovely his red-faced ‘Antipodular’ creature looked on the cover of last week’s Time Out mag (although it most certainly did look lovely), but whether or not a mystery guest would turn up and perform after the private view. Having asked Condo to paint the cover of his last solo album, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ (above), and his Twitter portrait, it was only fair that Kanye West got up on stage to pay respect to the New York painter of naughty nudes and bug-eyed portraits. West apparently played a few songs at the after-party while the London art world, including Jay Jopling and Mark Wallinger, got down on the dance floor.

For info, see George Condo listing.
