Assistant Professor Allison Grant is one of 47 early-career photographers selected for inclusion on the 2022 Silver List, compiled from the suggestions of over 125 nonprofit photography curators, scholars, publishers and critics and arranged randomly. The Silver List is a partnership between Silver Eye Center for Photography, The Black List and Carnegie Mellon University.

Ten photographs of Grant’s work are included in the exhibition Perpetual Ebb, curated by Eli Craven, at Purdue University’s Rueff Galleries, January 10 – February 4, 2022. The photographs are from Grant’s series Within the Bittersweet.

Curator Eli Craven wrote: “The exhibition includes seven artists exploring ideas of loss, fear, identity, and place through a lens of varied perspectives and photographic methods…Despite the solemn theme on the surface, the works in the exhibition conjure a sense of hope, curiosity, and awareness of that which troubles us.”

Grant has won awards and recognition for her art work and curatorial essay writing. She is assistant professor of photography and serves as director of graduate studies for studio art in the department.
