As a supplement to the centerpiece of Just Futures, the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery presents a free one-day screening of The White Album, Arthur Jafa's follow-up to Love Is The Message, The Message Is Death. As with Jafa's previous work, The White Album is collaged from found and original video, but shifts the gaze to white people and whiteness to expose Black-white relations in America.

Arthur Jafa received the 2019 Golden Lion award for best artist in the Venice Biennale for The White Album. Film courtesy the artist and Gladstone Gallery, New York and Brussels
