ARTHUR JAFA
from 21 FEB 2020 to 06 SEP 2020
A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions (Featuring Ming Smith, Frida Orupabo and Missylanyus)

Known as a cinematographer and filmmaker, Arthur Jafa is presenting in this exhibition the works that he has been making as a visual artist for the past two decades.. In his work, film, photography and sculpture, Jafa reveals the role of race, gender and class in mainstream popular culture and the social media in the United States and beyond.

From Spike Lee and Stanley Kubrick to Beyoncé and Solange, Arthur Jafa has collaborated with a long list of noteworthy filmmakers, artists and musicians. For the exhibition, Jafa has invited the photographer Ming Smith and the visual artist Frida Orupabo, and incorporated material from Missylanyus’ YouTube channel, to create an audio-visual experience that is both politically reflective and visionary. 

Curated by Amira Gad and Hans Ulrich Obrist
Presented in partnership with the Serpentine Galleries
