Currently on view at CAM Raleigh is Los Angeles based artist Eric Yahnker’s “The Long Goodbye” featuring the iconic image of President Barack Obama’s mic drop at his last White House Correspondent’s Dinner last year. During this speech, our former President made this remark:
“Next year at this time, someone else will be standing here in this very spot, and it’s anyone’s guess who she will be.”
And then ended his speech with an “Obama out” and a mic drop heard ’round the world. Eric Yahnker uses 44 drawings of this moment in a sequence around a dimly lit room.
