In Spring of 2011 the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles invited Italian muralist BLU to paint their huge north facing wall as part of their show Art in the Streets, a history of graffiti and street art. When the mural was nearly finished Jeffrey Deitch, director of MOCA, ordered it to be painted over due to it’s anti-war message. As a result, a collection of activists, including a group of Butoh dancers, gathered for the show’s opening to protest the censorship. WHITEOUT is my film documenting both the controversy and dramatic dance protest of this event.
