Titus Kaphar Wore What?!

And which country would he move to tomorrow (if he had to)?


This week we’ll share our video interview with artist Titus Kaphar, who opens a show Thursday night at both of Jack Shainman’s New York locations. The show is a serious affair, including recent works commissioned by Time magazine that were created as portraits of the Ferguson protesters as well as trademark canvases that use historical styles to comment on the position of African Americans in art history.

But the Creative Capital grantee was also game to answer lighter questions about things like his first job (where he found the uniforms a bit demeaning) and where he would go if he had to up and move tomorrow.

This is the latest in a video series artnet News created for Instagram. Past clips have focused on John WatersTakashi MurakamiJosé Parlá, and Daniel Canogar.
