Interview with Sarah Ross
Moderated by Gozie Ojini, this interview with artist Sarah Ross covers her work in GRAPHITE Journal's tenth issue, her teaching career, and how her greater body of work further explores the themes of class and race.

Sarah also works collaboratively with other artists on projects such as Compass (of the MRCC), Regional Relationships, Chicago Justice Torture Memorials, and Prison and Neighborhood Arts Project. She has co-curated exhibitions at SPACES Gallery, Cleveland, Sea and Space Explorations, Los Angeles, and PS122, New York.
