The Studio Museum in Harlem presents Into the Respite in support of Cameron Granger’s work in It’s time for me to go: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2021–22. Granger will be in conversation with the artist collective WITH(IN).DIGITAL. Considering bell hooks’s “Homeplace (A Site of Resistance)” as a grounding text, the artists will expand upon the ways they engage Black communities online and beyond.
This program peers into the collaborative relationship, rooted in their shared home state of Ohio, between Granger and WITH(IN).DIGITAL. Granger and the members of WITH(IN).DIGITAL continue to invest in creating virtual spaces for Black communities in the Midwest. Questions to be explored include: Within digital geographies, where can we build places of belonging? How can we carve out resting spaces for ourselves? How does technology affect our concepts of self and our creative processes?
This program will close with an audience Q&A. Live CART captioning and ASL interpretation will be provided.
It’s time for me to go is open to the public at MoMA PS1 through February 27, 2023.

Cameron A. Granger (b. 1993, Cleveland, OH; currently based in Columbus, OH) is Sandra’s son and came up in Cleveland, Ohio. Inspired by the rigorous, careful archival practices of his grandmother, Pearl, Granger uses his work as a means to quilt the histories of his communities, redacted by empire, into new, not just potential, but inevitable futures. His recent projects include “Everybody's got a little light under the sun,” a free food and short-film program made in collaboration with Willowbeez Soul Veg and the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio; and “The Get Free Telethon” a twenty-four-hour livestreamed community fundraiser for Columbus groups Black Queer Intersectional Collective, Healing Broken Circles, and Columbus Freedom Coalition, sponsored by Red Bull Arts. A 2017 alumnus of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Granger has exhibited his work at The Bemis Center, Omaha, Nebraska (2021); Ortega y Gasset Projects, New York (2019); and Platform Rf, Vaasa, Finland (2019).
