A presentation of the seminal video collage piece by Arthur Jafa.
From the Dallas Museum of Art:
“Following this summer’s online screening, the DMA is pleased to offer visitors another opportunity to see Arthur Jafa’s renowned film Love is the Message, The Message is Death. In this collage of found and self-produced footage set to the soundtrack of Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam,” Jafa juxtaposes representations of Black artists, scholars, athletes, and politicians—as well as everyday people largely unknown to the general audience—with depictions of events ranging from faith-based transcendence to police brutality. The resulting video is a kaleidoscope of past, present, and future that expresses both the cyclical nature of historical injustice and the alternative realities envisioned by a wide range of Black cultural traditions.
