The American artist Arthur Jafa curates the Cahiers d’Art Revue.
Arthur Jafa invited artists Mark Leckey, Dana Hoey, Torkwase Dyson, Frida Orupabo and Rashaad Newsome, who shared in their conversations their artistic practice, race and digital culture.
The issue also features excerpts from Arthur Jafa’s notebooks that he has been keeping since the 1990s, texts by Man Ray and Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University Saidiya Hartman, as well as the short story "Milk of Paradise," by new wave science fiction author James Tiptree Jr.
Filmmaker and artist Arthur Jafa (born 1960) grew up in Mississippi, where his lifelong fascination with found imagery manifested in his childhood hobby of assembling binders of photographs culled from various sources. As a cinematographer and director of photography, Jafa has collaborated with Stanley Kubrick, Solange Knowles and Spike Lee, among many others. His work on Julie Dash's 1991 film Daughters of the Dust won him the Best Cinematography award at Sundance. At the 2019 Venice Biennale, he was awarded the Golden Lion for The White Album. Jafa lives in Los Angeles.
