Ja’Tovia Gary is a filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist working across documentary, avant-garde video art, sculpture and installation. She's deeply concerned with re-memory and employs a rigorous interrogation and apprehension of the archive in much of her work, seeking to trouble notions of objectivity and neutrality in nonfiction storytelling by asserting a Black feminist subjectivity and applying “an oppositional gaze” as both maker and critical spectator of moving image works. Intimate, often personal and politically charged, her works unmask power and its influence on how we perceive and formulate reality. Gary’s films and installations serve as reparative gestures for the distorted histories through which Black life is often viewed. Black spiritual technologies, ancestral legacies, and the interiority of Black life often pull focus in Gary’s multivalent works. Gary has exhibited at the Hammer Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, MoMA PS1, Dallas Museum of Art, Centre Pompidou, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Locarno Film Festival, New Orleans Film Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Anthology Film Archives, Film at Lincoln Center and Harvard Film Archives, among other spaces.
