Episode #1: Granville Carroll
This new podcast features conversations with artists who have participated in Visual Studies Workshop's Project Space artist-in-residence program. In this episode Hernease Davis talks with artist Granville Carroll about his practice and his experiences during his residency at VSW in September, 2021.
The Project Space residency is a studio workspace for artists working in photography, book art, film and other media arts. The residency provides 20 artists per year the opportunity to experiment with new work or new display strategies, and to have discussions with critics, curators, and the community-at-large about works-in-progress.
