The Nasher Museum presents "Precarity," a new multichannel video installation created by John Akomfrah, the London-based artist and filmmaker. Precarity works with the themes of risk, hybridity and the unfathomable to explore the city of New Orleans through the remarkable life and times of Charles "Buddy" Bolden, the first person known to have explored the sonic tonalities of the music we now call jazz.
