Shia LaBeouf Relaunches Anti-Trump Livestream Project in New Mexico
After being shut down in New York City, Shia LaBeouf has relaunched his Anti-Trump "He Will Not Divide Us" livestream installation in New Mexico.
The actor, whose interactive art installation was shut down by the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York on February 10, reopened the project at the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque.
Prior to the installation's relaunch on Saturday, February 18, LaBeouf and his collaborators, Rönkkö and Turner, addressed the Museum of Moving Image's disappointing decision to discontinue the project in a statement released on TheCampaignBook.com.
"From the outset, the museum failed to address our concerns about the misleading framing of our piece as a political rally, rather than as a participatory performance artwork resisting the normalisation of division," the statement read. "Nonetheless, there had been no incidents of physical violence at the site of our project that we are aware of, nor that we had been informed of at any stage by the museum."
"He Will Not Divide Us" initially opened in Queens on Trump's inauguration day, January 20.
