The Hartnett Gallery will host a performative reading by Campbell followed by a conversation with Julie Niemi, and Almudena Escobar López. To receive the link to the webinar, please register in advance.
from the corner of my eye is the first retrospective of video works of artist, filmmaker, and writer Crystal Z Campbell. Campbell’s multidisciplinary artistic practice traces how the relationality between ideas and forms emerge through embodied creative research. Historical events interlace with intimate experiences unearthing fictional narratives, silenced memories, and shared histories. Rupturing public experiences of historical memory through lived experiences of selfhood, Campbell imagines a new understanding of social relations, and questions the institutional forensics of witnessing. Their films draw from the margins of archival documents, moving between personal anecdotes and cultural gestures, to reassess narratives and collective histories.
from the corner of my eye includes several short video works by Campbell, a live performative reading, and a new collaborative writing piece.
