Meet the Artist: Crystal Z Campbell.

Meet the Artist: Crystal Z Campbell

Join us to hear artist Crystal Z Campbell offer insights into MAG’s new exhibition, Crystal Z Campbell: Lines of Sight. This immersive exhibition illuminates the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and offers an alternative historical narrative, revealing Black communities that continued to thrive despite the massacre. During a conversation with curator Almudena Escobar López, Campbell will discuss their creative process and influences, and share other examples of their work. This program will be ASL interpreted.

Crystal Z Campbell, a 2021 Guggenheim Fellow in Fine Arts, is a multidisciplinary artist, experimental filmmaker, and writer, who finds complexity in public secrets—fragments of information known by many but largely undertold or unspoken. Their archive-based work, which spans from film, performance, to writing, has been exhibited at Drawing Center, Nest, ICA-Philadelphia, Studio Museum of Harlem, SculptureCenter, and SFMOMA, amongst others.

Almudena Escobar López is an Assistant Professor of Film History, Film Preservation, and Collection Management at the School of Image Arts of the Toronto Metropolitan University. López previously served as MAG’s Assistant Curator for Timed Media.

This program is included with museum admission. Special registration not required.
