The Day the Music Died: Edmund Clark

Edmund Clark

Grantee Edmund Clark's Negative Publicity project is being exhibited as a part of his first major solo exhibition in the US. Presenting photographs, video, and documents, The Day the Music Died, visualizes the processes, sites, and experiences associated with the United States' response to international terrorism.

Clark reveals how the unexpected connections between those who exercise control and those who are subject to it bring this covert torture trail to a human level. He highlights the everyday veneers under which purveyors of detention and interrogation operate in plain sight, brings light to the processes beneath, and reflects on how terror impacts us all by altering fundamental aspects of our society and culture.

On View through May 6, 2018 at the ICP Museum. More info here.
