Watch Jaden Smith Protest Trump for LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner’s New Art Project

+

Rapper, vampire and Doctor Strange superfan, Jaden Smith, is the first participant in Shia LaBeouf’s new art project. Since 9am this morning, Smith has been standing in front of a livestream camera repeating the phrase, “He Will Not Divide Us,” as part of LaBeouf’s four year series aimed at Trump.

Along with partners Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, the trio, who call themselves LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner, will hold a series of installations and art projects across Trump’s entire first term. Jaden’s peformance, from the Museum of Moving Images in Queen, is, according to the artists, “a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community.” Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, until Trump’s presidency ends, He Will Not Divide Us is a call for solidarity from anyone who wants to participate. I guess this mean’s Jaden and Shia have made up.
