Shia LaBeouf has moved his anti-Donald Trump “He Will Not Divide Us” here to Albuquerque. He first started in New York’s Museum of the Moving Image, and has now been shut down. He has moved his protest here to Albuquerque.
Today, the live-streaming protest is taking place outside the El Rey Theater here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. But Why here?
Here is what he said on his website, “On February 10, 2017, The Museum of the Moving Image abandoned HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US. Their evident lack of commitment to the project is damning,” the statement reads. “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.”
“In fact, the museum demonstrated a spectacular lack of judgement — and courtesy to us as artists — by neglecting to consult us when they staged a political rally at the site of our artwork on January 29, 2017,” it continued. “On numerous occasions, we voiced serious concerns to the museum about hate speech occurring at the site of our project, and requested that the museum act responsibly in moderating this and providing the public a means of reporting such incidents. Our requests were not even acknowledged, let alone acted upon.”
