Grant Worth

GRANT WORTH is charmed by gentle pursuits. He’s enthusiastic about collaborative practice and play, transformations, audio exercises, and intimate connections with nature. He yearns for a dimension where the softest among us are awarded the most volume. “I’m interested in creating environments and experiences which allow us to re-explore our own world and the way we relate to one another as mother and father, lovers and strangers, artists and adventurers, astronomer and star.” Grant Worth grew up in the forests of Central Wisconsin and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. During his earliest years in New York City, he studied photography and video at Tisch School of the Arts, pioneered a weekly costume party in the East Village, and was an integral element in Brooklyn’s Electroclash music scene. In 2005, his first solo photography show debuted as part of the inaugural exhibition of John Connelly Presents’ ground floor gallery in Chelsea, NY. His Polaroid work has gone on to be consistently paired with art masters of the medium and was featured in the Prestel publication The Polaroid Years: Instant Photography and Experimentation. He has directed, produced, and edited underground music videos, web serials, art films and abstractions, and has collaborated on video editorials for leading fashion brands and publications. As a member of FCKNLZ, the beauty and lifestyle collective specializing in mistakes, Worth completed residencies with RECESS (NY) and The Museum of Arts and Design (NY), and created immersive, performative experiments for many of New York City's galleries, museums, and cutting edge celebrations.
