'Love is the Message, the Message is Death' CL Recommends

When: Thu., Jan. 25, 7-8:30 p.m. 2018
Price: Free.

Mississippi-born artist and filmmaker Arthur Jafa stitches together found images to create gripping works that reveal media representations of black Americans. His Love is the Message installation uses the rich, gospel-powered sounds of Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam” as the soundtrack to a montage of footage that unpacks the complexities of black identity, from civil rights images to the L.A. riots to “The Dougie.”
