Grace Tenneh Kromah

Community Engagement Fellow

Grace Kromah is the Community Engagement Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Photography. She is a second-generation Liberian-American female visual artist who employs digital image-making, and film photography supplemented by darkroom alternative processes, screen printing, and writing in her work. In 2020 she obtained her BFA with an emphasis in photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). She has been a part of publications such as The Liberian Observer and Anthology of Literary and Visual Arts: The Complete Collection. Grace was also a part of many group shows during her time at SAIC, including SAIC’s Senior Expo, Virtual Exhibition, and the SAIC BFA Show in 2020. Grace explores themes such as family and historical trauma, memories, immigration, Liberian culture, the African diaspora, and what it means to be a Black woman in America. Her goal is to tell her story, narrate her life experiences, and illustrate recurring memories through analog portraits and self-portraits.
