Christian Marclay’s politically resonant fourteen-minute video installation Guitar Drag, (2000)—part of the exhibition ‘Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950’—depicts a loudly amplified electric guitar being violently dragged along a Texas country road by a pickup truck, alluding to the 1998 murder of James Byrd Jr.
The artist will discuss his creative process with 'Damage Control' co-curator Russell Ferguson, professor of art at UCLA.
