Video Playlist: Cameron Granger

Cameron Granger's video playlist inspired by the MoCP "In Their Own Form" exhibition to display April 25.

“I fell in love with video because it was the one thing that let me tell stories to anyone that would listen.”

Cameron Granger on his work

Video Playlist, a series of one-night video screenings programmed in response to and in partnership with MoCP exhibitions, will present Cameron Granger’s In Their Own Form-inspired curation April 25.

Granger is an award-winning filmmaker whose portfolio examines blackness as it relates to the “American Dream.” He also explores black representation in film and media and how these representations affects one’s sense of self and community. He is a founding member of MINT, a Columbus-based art collective and gallery space, and was a 2017 resident artist at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.

More programming for In Their Own Form will continue throughout May, with a teen workshop on Afrofuturist art and writing, in partnership with 826CHI, taking place May 2. On May 3, Jennifer Scott, D.Denenge Duyst-Akpem, and Ingrid LaFleur will lecture on Afrofuturist themes in contemporary art. Lesley A. Martin of The PhotoBook Review will speak on May 9 at the Hokin Project, and May 11 features an interactive celebration of science fiction in books and comics in conjunction with Manifest.
