Crystal Z Campbell
Crystal Z Campbell’s films speak with collective power. Speaking before, and beyond, our present moment, these works unravel tangled and ignored histories, while also building future repositories for healing and knowledge. Campbell pulls from public records, long-lost archives, and future histories, reflecting upon our present-day failures. This evening of short films does not abide by a rubric of legibility. Rather, legibility is anathema to the social protection and fortified secrets of Campbell’s artistic worlds — worlds constructed in service of Black bounty and reaping.
