Project Space Artist Residency
Open Studio September 23, 2021 6-7pm. Masks Required.
Granville Carroll is an educator and Afrofuturist photographer currently based in Rochester, NY. “My work investigates the nature of reality and selfhood. I often ask questions regarding the existential nature of what it means to be human, while simultaneously addressing issues that affect me as a Black man. I work through the lens of Afrofuturism to expand ideas about blackness as a racial construct, a tonal quality, and the blackness of cosmic space. I use the cosmos as a metaphor to show how blackness is not a detriment or a space of fear and scarcity. I explore blackness as a space of origin story, of creation, and power.”
