Prior to joining Syracuse University, Dandridge was an assistant professor of art and art history at DePauw University from 2018-20, where he taught courses in video and digital art. Dandridge is a moving image artist whose films interpret the nuances of African American culture through the poetics and aesthetics of experimental cinema. His research interrogates various histories through a combination of assemblage, superimposition, and multi-channel orientation. As a filmmaker, cultural referencing, nostalgia, and religion are themes explored in his work.
He has exhibited at venues throughout North America and Europe including group exhibitions and screenings at the B Complex Gallery in Atlanta, Open Grounds in Charlottesville, Modern Art Oxford in England, Cerritos College in Los Angeles, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond.
Subsequent artistic projects have been supported by the Peel Research Award in Visual Art from St. Edmund Hall in 2018. In 2019, he was selected for a Summer Arts residency at Ox-Bow School of Art. This past year, he was selected to participate in the Red Bull Arts Detroit Residency program.
Dandridge earned an M.F.A. (with distinction) in 2018 from the University of Oxford’s Ruskin School of Art. In 2016 he received a B.A. in film and media studies from the University of Virginia.
