Juror: Darryl DeAngelo Terrell

Darryl DeAngelo Terrell (they/them) is a Detroit-based artist primarily working in lens-based media (video/photography), performance, sound and writing.

Darryl’s work explores displacement of black and brown people, femme identity and strength, the black family structure, sexuality, gender, safe spaces for all black bodies and personal stories, all while keeping in mind the accessbility of art. Darryl received their MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
