Details

Ja’Tovia M. Gary is an artist and filmmaker whose work seeks to “liberate the distorted histories through which black life is often viewed while fleshing out a nuanced and multivalent black interiority.” Gary studied documentary film production and Africana Studies at Brooklyn College before receiving her MFA in Social Documentary Filmmaking at the School of the Visual Arts in New York. Screenings 4 features two of Gary’s recent works: An Ecstatic Experience (2015) and Giverny I (Négresse Impériale) (2017). The latter film won several awards when it first screened at the 2018 New Orleans Festival and An Ecstatic Experience is now part of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s permanent collection.

Exhibition on View: September 4 to October 17
