UB's CDI Distinguished Visiting Scholar in Art, Crystal Campbell

Crystal Z Campbell’s multidisciplinary practice centers on public secrets, or information known by many, but that is undertold and underspoken. Campbell’s film, VIEWFINDER, was shot entirely in the resort town of Varberg, Sweden and features recent migrants to Sweden. This immersive film installation takes cues from Swedish folktales, gestures, and movements to explore belonging, allyship, and living monuments. If our bodies are archives, what is the currency of place, of movement, of memory?

Part of Navigating Identity Exhibition and Workshop Series, which is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

In partnership with Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center.
