Kenseth Armstead, excerpts from the project
In the summer of 1781, James Armistead Lafayette was the sneakiest man in America, whose spying succeeded in liberating our insurgent forefathers from the British Empire. Spook™ is a multimedia installation based on Lafayette’s role as a double agent for America’s first Director of Central Intelligence, George Washington. Armstead has exhibited at the Whitney Museum, the Studio Museum, the Brooklyn Museum and the Bronx Museum. His works are in the Centre Pompidou and African American Museum, Dallas. Armstead has received grants from Pollock-Krasner Foundation, NYFA, NYSCA, Creative Capital and the Bronx Council on the Arts Digital Matrix Commission and been artist-in-residence at LMCC, Eyebeam and the Castle Tebesice, Prague.
