This “meta-marathon” around the perimeter of the museum is part of the symposium Metamodernism: The Return of History being held on Thursday (September 25, 2014).
The actor has described the piece as “a multi-platform meditation on celebrity and vulnerability”, and will perform alongside Finish performance artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö, and Manchester artist Luke Turner.
The trio previously collaborated on another social media augmented performance art project, #IAMSORRY, for which LaBeouf sat in a room with a paper bag over his head ignoring the public’s attempts at engaging him.
On Twitter, LaBeouf gave a hint about the concept behind the marathon.
