Join ICP in conversation with Elliott Jerome Brown, Jr., for the third session of our seasonal lecture series, ICP Talks. Moderated by Kameelah Janan Rasheed.
Elliott Jerome Brown Jr. (born 1993, Baldwin, NY) is an artist using photography to explore representation through privacy and fiction. Occasionally the work turns away from standard archival prints to examine photography as a sculptural, redactive, and site-specific process. He has completed residencies at Abrons Art Center in New York, St. Roch Community Church in New Orleans, and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. He is a 2022 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow in Photography and received the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Emerging Artist Grant in 2019. Brown received his BFA in Photography from New York University and is a Part-Time Lecturer in Photography at The New School in New York. He is represented by Nicelle Beauchene in New York and is based in Queens, New York. He is currently working with Matte Editions on releasing a book for publication this Spring.
A learner, Kameelah Janan Rasheed (she/they), grapples with the poetics-pleasures-politics of Black knowledge production, information technologies, [un]learning, and belief formation. They are a recipient of a 2022 Schering Stiftung Award for Artistic Research, a 2022 Creative Capital Award, and a 2021 Guggenheim Fellowship in Fine Arts. Rasheed is the author of three artist’s books: An Alphabetical Accumulation of Approximate Observations (Endless Editions, 2019), No New Theories (Printed Matter, 2019), and the digital publication Scoring the Stacks (Brooklyn Public Library, 2021).
