Basma Alsharif: "When we are reminded of what we have lost, what we do not have, where we are not wanted: it asks us to stay in the past. Every time we drag an irreconcilable history out of the ground it is as though we are dragging a corpse buried long ago and confronting it with the present.” Tomorrow: MOCA presents A Full spectrum, a screening featuring Basma Alsharif, Chino Amobi, Akram...

Arthur Jafa: “I have a very simple mantra and it's this: I want to make black cinema with the power, beauty, and alienation of black music. That's my big goal. The larger preoccupation is how do we force cinema to respond to the existential, political, and spiritual dimensions of who we are as a people.” Arthur Jafa: Love Is The Message, The Message Is Death at MOCA Geffen closes...

I decided that I wanted to create a portrait of our time in America, in relationship to the incredible opposition discourse.” Selections from the Permanent Collection: Catherine Opie and Sterling Ruby...
