Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents  

FOCUS: Jamal Cyrus  

NOW ON VIEW THRU –June 26, 2022 

The Houston-based artist examines forgotten, ignored, or fragmentary accounts of Black American culture. He raises clear questions about “official” history, what is overlooked and why, and the biases held by those writing and interpreting it. Cyrus uses a range of materials including musical equipment, food, plant life, and used clothing, but transforms them into densely layered objects that refer to Southern material culture.
