Shia LaBeouf’s Anti-Trump Project Gets Vandalized
Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump art project was vandalized early Tuesday morning.
The performance art exhibit — involving a camera attached to a wall with the words “He Will Not Divide Us” on it and set up outside the El Rey Theatre in Albuquerque, New Mexico — was covered up with spray paint, according to TMZ. (RELATED: Shia LaBeouf Cuffed By The Cops At His Own Art Exhibit)
The camera was defaced around 4:20 a.m. by a masked person who used red spray-paint to cover up the camera that provides a live video feed of the scene online. At this time the camera is still obscured, but people can see attempts are being made to clean the lens. (RELATED: Shia Gets Divided From Latest ‘Art’ Project)
“We are anti the normalization of division,” LaBeouf said at the unveiling on Saturday.
The project was attacked only days after it relocated to New Mexico, following its removal from the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York because of security concerns.
The NYC museum says it turned off the camera because it had become a “flash point for violence,” according to another TMZ report.
The actor was arrested last month at the NYC site when he allegedly got into an altercation with a protester who was protesting his project.
There is no word yet how long the exhibit will be up in New Mexico, but originally the one in New York was supposed to be run through Trump’s entire presidency.
