“Jefferson Pinder creates performances, videos, and objects that challenge viewers to think critically about historical and contemporary social issues in America. His dynamic, experimental videos feature minimalist performances that convey narrative through movement, with music often advancing the story line. LAZARUS explores notions of community and the limits on socioeconomic mobility. The subjects in his videos do not speak, but their actions resonate with the frustrations of everyday life.”*
