David Kordansky Gallery is pleased to announce Derek Fordjour in conversation with Ava DuVernay: “Bookmaker’s Dozen,” an online exhibition featuring a new dozen-frame painting that is one of the definitive statements of Fordjour’s career.

Derek Fordjour, Bookmaker’s Dozen, 2021 (DETAIL), acrylic, charcoal, cardboard, and oil pastel on newspaper mounted on canvas, 65 1/2 x 107 3/4 inches (165.7 x 273.7 cm), Photo: Daniel Greer

In a wide-ranging conversation, Fordjour and award-winning director Ava DuVernay approach his cinematic painting, Bookmaker’s Dozen (2021), as a springboard for meditations on process and labor, framing in painting and film, the historical patterns at play in the making and reception of art, and the Black body.

The presentation will be on view August 27 – September 17 on the gallery’s website.
