Shia LaBeouf’s exhibition, which is lambing to President Donald Trump, has closed because it has become a “hotbed of violence.”
The performing arts encouraged the public to say “He will not separate us” in a camera mounted in front of the Museum of the Moving Image in New York.
Shia LaBeouf was arrested after a phrase at the place, which the police started to serve around the clock.
The Transformers star criticizes the museum’s decision to close the exhibition.
On Twitter, Shia LaBeouf posted a live stream image, which now reads: The museum abandoned us.
He co-founded the project, which began on President Trump’s inauguration day, Jan. 20, with artists Luke Turner and Nastya Ronko.
The live stream was performed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the artists had planned to maintain it throughout Donald Trump’s presidency.
In the early hours of January 26, however, Shia LaBeouf was charged with assault and harassment following a clash with a man who was broadcast live.
The New York Daily News reported that a number of white superiors had appeared on the scene in the past three weeks, including one apparently wearing a Nazi hat.
A statement from the museum said that the atmosphere of the exhibition called HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US, “Significantly worsened” after the arrest of Shia LaBeouf.
There were “dozens of threats of violence and numerous arrests” and this became a “hot spot for violence”, the statement added.
The museum said: “While public safety concerns do not invalidate the intention of the installation, HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US generates an important conversation that allows interaction between people from different backgrounds and from different points of view.”
A statement on the exhibition’s website said: “On February 10, 2017, the Museum of the Moving Image abandoned the project. However, artists are not. “
