Cameron Granger: The Cartographer Tries to Map a Way to Heaven
Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 15
For his solo project at the CAC, Ohio-based artist and filmmaker Cameron Granger develops a new iteration of The Line (2021) for the CAC lobby that draws from his personal biography as a Black man raised by his mother and grandmother in Ohio. By juxtaposing live-action scenes, autobiographical texts, and found footage, Granger’s videos and installations weave stories that complicate accepted interpretations of the past and present. His works thus offer poignant meditations on Black history and culture.
The Cartographer Tries to Map a Way to Heaven is part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial.
