Edgar Arceneaux had his second major exhibition in New York City at The Kitchen in 2005. Titled Borrowed Sun, the installation included large-scale graphite drawings, film and slide projections, and concrete and glass sculptures. The show brought together a network of associations between three prominent historical figures: the 17th-century scientist Galileo, the free jazz musician Sun Ra, and the conceptual artist Sol LeWitt. Arceneaux’s work abandons linear logic for visual association and wordplay and focuses on process and erasure. The exhibition was curated by Debra Singer.
