Ernest A. Bryant III on Afrofuturism
Ernest A. Bryant III, L.P.I., is an artist and critic from the USA. He has a background in interdisciplinary art. He earned an MFA from Yale University, School of Art, where he focused on critical theory, new media, and printmaking; and earned a second MFA in Art Writing & Criticism from the New York School of Visual arts, where his focus was art and society’s relationship to nature, molestation, conservation, and homelessness. In his work he uses nature, video, image-making, history, positionality, theory and humor to examine the ontological conflicts that arise between different aesthetic and cultural values.
With the pandemic, 2020 master's thesis projects were presented online via Zoom. Each student produced a book and an online repository for their work. A few appear below.
We’re running most of our fall 2020 classes online, some with in-person components. Shops and studios are open.
