Azurest

Azurest is project on race, gender, queer desire, and homemaking in Jim Crow era Virginia. It is part documentary and part speculation. The primary subject is Azurest South, a 1938 International Style home designed by the underrecognized African American artist and architect Amaza Lee Meredith, which she shared with her partner Dr. Edna Colson. The series combines photographs of the home and ephemera from Meredith's archive. This constellation of materials situates Meredith's life and work within a broader context of race, gender, sexuality, and housing in early 20th Century America. This project was made with the support of a 2019 grant from the Graham Foundation.
