Carroll Parrott Blue, MFA
carrollpblue@hotmail.com

I am looking for an art scholar who specializes in late 20th and early 21st African American Art who is interested in contributing an introductory chapter on a 60-year review of the works of my work. As artist Carroll Parrott Blue, I am assembling my archive and am open to an interview by the author.

From the 1960s to the present, my work encompasses published written works, still photography, film, video, public art, digital media, digital stories, interactive multimedia, ARC GIS Story Maps, production notes and other materials associated from many of the productions.

The essay that will support the completed archival report should be roughly 6,000-8,000 words with notes and references included. The interview as a transcript will be separate. The main focus of the essay is on an overall or comprehensive analysis of the work. The author should be prepared to engage formal analysis, the history of the technological changes from analog to digital, race and gender theory, and biography.
