The Ecstatic Message: Talking Music and Moving Image Art with Artists Ja'Tovia Gary and Arthur Jafa
Music is a great source of inspiration for artists Ja’Tovia Gary and Arthur Jafa and a major element in their gallery-based work. Musicians are frequent collaborators and occasional subjects, as in Jafa’s music video for Cassandra Wilson and Gary’s documentary on queer rapper Cakes Da Killa. Through conversation and clip sharing, Gary and Jafa explore the interplay of music and moving image across their creative careers.
