Brannon Rockwell-Charland

Oberlin College

Brannon Rockwell-Charland is a multimedia artist originally hailing from Berkeley, California. She is a fourth year Africana Studies and Visual Art major at Oberlin College where she serves as the co-chair of Students of Caribbean Ancestry. She is a Mellon-Mays Undergraduate Research Fellow whose scholarship deals with historical mixed-race media representation, race in contemporary advertising, and postracialism. Much of her artistic work focuses on visual intersections of queerness, blackness, gender, legacy, autobiography, and mythology. Her photographic and sculptural work has been shown at the Lansing Art Gallery in Lansing, Michigan and at the Edmonia Lewis Center for Women and Transgender People in Oberlin, Ohio. In her spare time, she enjoys stream of consciousness writing, playing the guitar, singing, and mixing lipstick colors to find the perfect shade. She was probably a mermaid in a past life.
