Christian Marclay: Guitar Drag

Artpace

May 28 - August 30, 2015

"During his 1999 Artpace residency Marclay created Guitar Drag, a 14-minute video depicting a pickup truck dragging an amplified, electric guitar tied by a rope across a Texas roadway to its aggressive destruction. This performance piece was created partly in response to the 1998 murder of 49-year-old James Byrd, Jr. of Jasper, TX by three white supremacists. Sixteen years after its initial making, Artpace will proudly present the completed version of Marclay’s film."
