Serpentine Gallery - Arthur Jafa: A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions

Featuring Ming Smith, Frida Orupabo and Missylanyus. The Serpentine presents the work of the acclaimed US filmmaker, cinematographer and artist Arthur Jafa. Across three decades, Jafa has developed a dynamic, multidisciplinary practice ranging from films and installations to lecture-performances and happenings that tackle, challenge and question prevailing cultural assumptions about identity and race.
 
The exhibition will be on view until September 10, 2017
