    “You’re just a mass of images you’ve gotten to know / from years and years of TV shows. / The hurting thing; the hidden pain / was written and bitten into your veins / I don’t and I won’t relate / and I think for some it’s too late!”
    —from
    Mass of Images (1978).

    Drawing on her essay in the winter issue, “Written and Bitten: Ulysses Jenkins and the Non-Ontology of Blackness,” Aria Dean will introduce Jenkins’ work, followed by a screening, and conversation between the artist Ulysses Jenkins and LA Municipal Gallery curator Erin Christovale about Jenkins’ work, focusing on the late 1970s and early 1980s.

    The screening will include Mass of Images (1978) and Two Zone Transfer (1979).
