Editor: Buro 24/7

Things are about to get incredibly busy for Kanye West, who already juggles being a award-winning rapper with being a fashion designer, as he announces another new job – 'art curator'

Kanye West has been employed by Carine Roitfeld, who has tapped the rapper-turned-fashion-designer to be her new 'art curator'. 

West will serve as art curator for Roitfeld's publication CR Fashion Book. Taking inspiration from Jolie Laide, West has curated an interesting range of works featuring artists such as Paul McCartney, Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, and Cecily Brown. The full project is featured inside issue 6 of CR Fashion Book, on newsstands now.

West has also provided the text for the article, writing: "I am moved by visions that feel very physical, very aggressive – where the body is molded and shaped, twisted and beaten into existence. Within these works, I locate my affinity for – or maybe my addiction to – the body."
