Arthur Jafa, 28 Jun 2019 — 08 Sep 2019
Awarded the Golden Lion for best artist in the central exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2019, the LA based artist is having a major solo show at Moderna Museet.
For this exhibition, Jafa has invited along the photographer Ming Smith and the visual artist Frida Orupabo, and included material from Missylanyus’s Youtube channel, to build an experience in sound and image that is both politically reflective and visionary.
In his practice and through film, photography, and found material, he explores events in African-American history also being inspired by other artists, writers, and scholars, such as John Akomfrah, Toni Morrison, and Fred Moten.
