On view in Room 6 of the Pavilions was 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. Jafa’s presentation in Room 6 brought together a variety of modes and mediums central to the artist’s practice, including film, sculpture, and photography. He is the winner of the top prize at the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019.
