A Conversation with Christian Marclay 27 May 2015, 6.30 – 9pm
Christian Marclay’s video work Guitar Drag will be shown at Artpace, where it was created by Marclay during a residency in 1999. The 14-minute film depicts an amplified electric guitar being dragged along Texas country roads, tied by a rope to the back of a pickup truck. The work was created partly in response to the 1998 murder of James Byrd, Jr. by three white supremacists in Texas, and its widespread repercussions.
To coincide with the presentation, the artist will be in conversation with former Artpace Director Amanda Cruz on Wednesday 27 May 2015 at 6.30pm.
