Arthur Jafa

On view in Room 6 of the Pavilions is the first solo presentation in the Washington, D.C. area of works by Arthur Jafa (American, b. 1960), who is best known for his films incorporating powerful montages of found images and videos that reference the pain, beauty, and creativity inherent in Black American life.

He is the winner of the top prize at the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019.
