Public conversation with the artist and Paula Katz, executive director of iMOCA.
Jones’ work is informed by historical source material and early modes of representation in documentary practice. He explores the framing of power and struggles between exclusion and equality by desecrating historical material, then re-imagining new works. With an emphasis on race and superiority, Jones investigates issues of manipulation and the rejection of control in a broad sense.
Samuel Levi Jones‘ “After Fred Wilson,” is currently exhibited at the Murphy Building through November 19.
