SEDRICK MILES

Sed Miles is a self taught artist and activist. His artistic and political work focuses on themes related to identity, negritude and surrealism. His work expresses a spiritual link between documentary, fine art, and subjective narratives. Making great use of a double-voiced rhetoric, the signifying style of cultural critique, he cleverly initiates his view of this world with a formal visual vocabulary applied to the African Diaspora. His photography has been featured globally in galleries and public spaces throughout several communities where he’s been developing artistic work and relationships: US, Mexico, Brazil, Senegal, UK, and France. His first book of photography, The Pathfinder was self-published in 2015. Sed’s current projects focusing his research on extending theorizations of transnational blackness from Afro surrealism, afrofuturism, Négritude, queer of colour critique, intersectional feminist frameworks, and black aesthetics.
