In Ginia Bellafante’s “Shia LeBeouf and the Pitfalls of Celebrity Activism,” we find out conflicts presented at the scene of Shia LeBouf’s new installation outside the Museum of the Moving Image.
Many people enjoyed the “participatory performance artwork resisting the normalization of division,” but some despised this work of art. People saw the artwork as more of an anti-Trump message than it’s true idea… they got quite angry.
Why did they get angry?
