Edgar Arceneaux in "Los Angeles"Preview

In this preview from the Los Angeles episode of Season 8 of Art in the Twenty-First Century, artist Edgar Arceneaux discusses the “suicide letter” sent by the FBI to Martin Luther King, Jr., which the artist incorporated into his 2014 project, A Book and a Medal.

“What I was trying to do,” says the artist of the installation, “was to explore the vulnerabilities of a person who’s in a position of leadership.”
