        Los Angeles: Chapter 16, A Book and a Medal, Edgar Arceneaux | art21

        Learn about historical and political events, in this clip of season 8 of Art21’s Art in the Twenty-First Century, as Edgar Arceneaux investigates these themes through performances, installations, drawings and sculptures. In his LA show, the artist attempts to explore vulnerabilities of persons in a position of leadership and the concept of monumentalization and heroism. He uses original civil rights era recordings and documents and creates multi-channel videos to design politically charged artwork, installations, and performances that deal with the issue and possibility of democracy in the light of the US’s history with genocide and slavery, at the same time questioning if the current political situation is even improvable.
