People who have saved this event:


Los Angeles–based artist and YBCA 100 honoree Edgar Arceneaux explores historical patterns around race and representation through drawings, installations, and theater.


At YBCA, the artist experiments with the exhibition as a format of presentation. Until Until Until… (2015–17) is a multi-media video installation as well as a live action play—written, staged, and directed by Arceneaux—that revisits a controversial performance by Ben Vereen at Ronald Reagan’s inauguration. Complementing this work, Library of Black Lies (2016) is a large-scale sculpture and labyrinth containing a collection of crystallized books—from dictionaries, to encyclopedias, to novels—presenting variants on African American history.

Until Until Until… will be performed live in the gallery space on February 22–24, 2018.
