What a time to be alive.
Shia LaBeouf the performance artist is on the loose again and we couldn't be more excited. By now you've heard about his latest stunt, #allmymovies, right? According to The Guardian, the actor is currently at the Angelika Film Center in New York City, watching all of his movies back to back. That is correct, all of his movies. Shia tweeted the address for the event this morning so that you can sit alongside him and lose yourself in the cinematic work of Shia.
His films will screen 24 hours a day for the next three days, with small breaks in between each of them. If you can't jet to NYC in time, tune into the nifty live stream, which is focused on the actor's face (in case he sheds a lone teardrop, we're guessing) and be a part of the action.
In other words, you can watch him watch his movies. Slay, art kween. Admission to the event is totally free, so you have no reason not to go if you live in the area. Let us know how it goes sitting through both Nymphomanic films, though. Maybe don't bring your mom...
While this whole Shia-and-chill thing seems way cool, you're probably wondering what the eff it all means. In fact, you've probably wondered that after all of Shia's performance pieces. Good news, kids, we've figured out the secret artful meanings behind his most famous performance pieces.
How could we forget that fateful bag-over-head incident? This, like many of his other performance pieces, was orchestrated by the actor along with artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner. We think this was an environmental statement about the importance of upcycling paper waste into designer headwear. Like, right? Either that or he had a particularly bad hair day and called it art.
This green-screen gem affirmed our love for all things artsy Shia. The motivational clip was actually an excerpt from this artful collab titled #introductions by the same artists as above. Fast-forward to the 9:02 mark if you need a reminder as to why you should get out bed today. After careful artistic analysis, we've determined this piece was actually a subconscious effort to bring the braided rat tail back into style circulation. Well done.
Sia's "Elastic Heart" featuring Shia and Maddie Ziegler might have baffled millions, but we've finally cracked its artful meaning. The cage represents being restricted by your new vegan lifestyle. Maddie represents a cheeseburger taunting Shia, who is hangry and vulnerable from too many celery sticks. Damn, we are good.
Just like #allmymovies, "Meditation for Narcissists" is another artsy move from Labeouf, Rönkkö and Turner. This time jumping rope poolside for a straight hour. We're maxed out on Shia thoughts for the day so we'll leave this interpretation up to you. What do you think—rejected American Apparel model audition or journey to inner peace?
