Arthur Jafa and Greg Tate

Arthur Jafa & Greg Tate

From 1990 to 2007 the filmmaker Arthur Jafa filled nearly 200 three-ring binders with images from various sources that reflect aspects of black culture. These “picture books,” on display in Made in L.A. 2016, form unexpected and lyrical juxtapositions that represent Jafa’s interest in black aesthetics and his experiments with context, belonging, and alienation. Jafa will discuss representation and black cultural production with the writer and musician Greg Tate.
