FOCUS: Jamal Cyrus
On view through June 26, 2022
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
Fort Worth, Texas

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is pleased to present the exhibition “FOCUS: Jamal Cyrus.” 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.
