The Death of the Presidency (2017)

By Melanie McLean Brooks


On a sunny Saturday over Presidents' Day weekend, Gays Against Guns artist and activist Jay W. Walker leads a New Orleans-style funeral procession in New York City. Mourning the death of the Presidency, he and hundreds of collaborators use performance art as political action, expressing their opposition to Donald Trump's policies.
