An African-American student at Sacramento State University is under fire for her recent work of art – which consisted of “lynching” two white men from a tree on the northern California campus.
“The purpose of this performance was to bring to light social injustices and the issue of inequality that impacts me and my community as a whole,” Edwards said.
University President Alexander Gonzalez released this statement saying, in part: “The university did not approve the display, and I want to assure everyone that I am working to address the multiple issues raised by this incident.”
Edwards says she chose to illustrate this time in history by using race reversal, in an effort to shine new light on an old but standing matter.
She killed two men and called it art?
The men were reportedly actors and were in no real danger during the project, which took place during the day in early December while students were on campus. The men were hung from a tree with a thick rope.
LoL! I find most performance art to be nonsensical, over-dramatic and often offensive ...so what else is new under the sun? And posting it far and wide on the web only furthers the spectacle...why feed it?
It must be art because we don't get it.
In other news: most art in modern arts is near-incomprehensible.
Arts one and only job: to produce curiosity. This worked out. I don't like it, either, but see - that just doesn't matter.
That's "art" to us.
