Today we will be sharing the remaining 2016 Artist as Activist Fellows. Titus Kaphar engages with contemporary social issues, specifically the criminal justice system through his artwork. As a fellow he will employ New Haven youth to help finish The #JeromeProject new multi-media extension, paying forward his own escape from incarceration through the discovery of his artistic talents.

// TITUS KAPHAR // Artist: Titus Kaphar
Title: The Jerome Project
Medium: Asphalt Paper and Chalk
Year: 2015

In Asphalt and Chalk, Kaphar continues The Jerome Project by drawing composite portraits of multiple Jeromes with chalk on asphalt paper. As he layers the contours and features of each face, one becomes disoriented as each individual begins to bleed into the next. This series represents a community, specifically of African-American men who are statistically overrepresented in our nation’s prison population and the criminal justice system.

Sunday in the studio with #tituskaphar #jeromeproject

I used to think that art had to move me viscerally to be good, but then I realized how context plays a tremendous part in that reaction. #TitusKaphar #jeromeproject #artthursday #lessonlearned #ryanteam2015

I loved how this woman's head fell in line with the artwork.

Breathtaking portrait of MLK by my former student, Arianna Alamo. As a high schooler, she made this for our Jerome Project exhibition at ArtSpace New Haven in 2015, responding to 3 weeks of discussion around the inequities of the prison industrial complex and its connection to America's longstanding history of racial injustice. #youngleader #proudteacher #mlk #mugshot #jeromeproject #justice #artspace #newhaven

Really happy I finally got to see #tituskaphar #jeromeproject in real life, it's like listening to your favorite band through your ear phones and finally seeing them live for the first time. Very magical! #datenight #selflove #art #brooklynmuseum #Brooklyn #goldleaf #tar #portraits #blackcontemporaryart #blackcontemporary #blackartists #prisonindustrialcomplex #blackmen #portraits
