7 PM Lecture by acclaimed British filmmaker John Akomfrah, 2017 winner of the UK's Artes Mundi Prize, will discuss his new three-channel video Precarity, which tells the story of the near-mythological jazz figure Buddy Bolden of New Orleans. The Nasher Museum co-commissioned the video, which premiered at Prospect.4 New Orleans, and also opened here on March 29.
