Honoring Black Artists - Jacarrea Garraway
The Self Publication - Juneteenth Showcase
In honor of Juneteenth this year, The Self Publication is featuring Black creatives in a week-long showcase to highlight our creativity, resilience, and multifaceted methods of beautifully expressing our emotions and mindsets while navigating systemic antiBlackness in our society.
Today we would like to present: Jacarrea Garraway
About the artist:
Jacarrea Garraway is a director from Boston, Massachusetts. Known for her afro surrealist aesthetic and attraction to cultural references, she creates visual moments that capture poetry in motion with an intimate and authentic understanding of externalizing our interior worlds.
She is skilled at capturing natural performances that reveal more insight into the Black imagination. Jacarrea’s most recent work considers the ways in which films can depict sequences of Black beauty, movement, and music in order to capture a sense of double consciousness.
