King David

1978, 17:29 min, b&w, sound

Jenkins records David Hammons, at a decisive moment in the artist's development, just prior to his move from Los Angeles to New York. Part interview, part video performance, Hammons, in conversation with fellow artist LaMonte Westmoreland, considers Los Angeles's black artist community, the legacy of the Watts Rebellion, and his own artistic strategies.
