Edgar Arceneaux, I Told Jesus, Change My Name (still), 2012. 16mm
Building Loving and Distrustful Relationships, a solo exhibition of works by Los Angeles-based artist Edgar Arceneaux, opens at Maccarone in New York this Saturday. 

Composed of three bodies of drawings, paintings and a two-channel 16mm film entitled, “I Told Jesus, Change My Name”, Arceneaux plots the ways in which relationship-building (changing the nature of interactions between things) has been an essential element throughout his practice for the last 15 years. Building relationships is at the heart of Arceneaux’s artistic output, bringing together seemingly disparate elements that cross genres, histories and varied materials, to express the deeper meanings about their transient present as well as our primitive past.

The show will be on view through December 15th. 
Additionally, check out this interview with Arceneaux, Charles Gaines and Rick Lowe from 2010 in Bomb Magazine.
