Genesis client Edmund Clark presents eight projects in The Day the Music Died, an exhibition exploring the measures taken by states, especially the United States, to protect their citizens from the threat of international terrorism and the implications of these measures. From Guantanamo Bay to Afghanistan to extraordinary rendition and the CIA’s secret prison program, the evolution of Clark’s work has become an archive of the processes, sites, people, and experiences associated with America’s response to perceived threats and its conduct of modern asymmetric warfare. Through photographs, documents, and video, Clark confronts military and state censorship, questions prevailing modes of representation and spectacle, and defines the quotidian processes of detention and interrogation that continue to operate in plain sight. Most importantly, Clark’s work reflects on how terror and the response to it impacts us all by altering fundamental aspects of our society and culture.

Organised by director of exhibitions and collections Erin Barnett, The Day The Music Died is Clark’s first major solo museum exhibition in the United States.
