Arthur Jafa: A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions (featuring Ming Smith; Frida Orupabo and Missylanyus)

In his film work, American artist Arthur Jafa embodies the image of African-American identity and culture through a wide range of contemporary shots and images. The mixture of segments of well-known icons and historical events of African-American culture and anonymous bodies in various emotionally exalted states of enthusiasm and despair brings a synthesizing view of the American history of the life of the African-American community. Jafa authentically reveals his own identity, consisting both of the artist’s vulnerability and authority, and answers the question of what it means to be part of a complex field of black representation. It attempts to rewrite the history of African-American visual aesthetics and thereby contribute to the opening of this theme in the new horizon.

Admission to the exhibition is free thanks to the J&T Bank.


Presented in partnership with the Serpentine Galleries.
