Fragments of Epic Memory: Charles Campbell & Natalie Wood

Tuesday, December 14, 4 pm

Join artists Charles Campbell and Natalie Wood for a conversation about the work they have each contributed to the exhibition, Fragments of Epic Memory, and their respective practices.

Charles Campbell is a Jamaican-born multidisciplinary artist, writer and curator whose practice investigates the future imaginaries possible in the wake of colonization. His work has been exhibited widely, including at the Havana Biennial, the Brooklyn Museum and Alice Yard in Port of Spain. Recent exhibitions include Vancouver Special, Disorientations and Echo at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Fragments of Epic Memory at the Art Gallery of Ontario and The Other Side of Now at the Perez Art Museum Miami. Campbell holds an MA in Fine Art from Goldsmith College and a BFA from Concordia University. He currently lives and works in Victoria BC.

Natalie Wood is a Trinidadian-born, Toronto-based visual and media multidisciplinary artist. She studied at OCADU, received an MA at University of Toronto and is presently pursuing a PhD at York University’s Environment and Urban Change Program. Her work cohabits the areas of popular culture, education and historical research and explores her fascination with discovering counter-narratives, healing cultures and arts based icons that engage in practices of liberating Black and Queer communities. She creates videos, video performances, installations, deconstructed cardboard and multimedia paintings. Select awards include a Canada Arts Council Explore and Creation grant 2020, Wildseed Centre for Arts and Activism Arts Fellowship 2021, and a SSHRC grant to research Toronto based Black and Queer creative practices 2021.
