This spring, Light Work is pleased to present new, commissioned work by multimedia artist Crystal Z Campbell at our Urban Video Project projection site on the north façade of the Everson Museum of Art. Campbell is a multidisciplinary artist, experimental filmmaker, and writer of Black, Filipinx, and Chinese descent. Their work engages in (counter-)archival practices to explore gaps in historical narratives from the Tulsa Race Massacre to Henrietta’s Lacks’ “immortal cell line.” Campbell was in-residence at Light Work in June 2023.

Campbell is a Creative Capital and Pollock-Krasner award recipient, past Harvard Radcliffe Film Study Center and Whitney ISP fellow, and past resident at Skowhegan, MacDowell, and Franklin Furnace. Their work has been shown at the Flaherty Film Seminar, the BLOCK Museum (Evanston, IL), MoMA (NYC, NY), the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN), Project Row Houses (Houston, TX), and MIT List Visual Arts Center (Cambridge, MA), among many others.

This project was made possible through the support of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.

Urban Video Project (UVP), a program of Light Work in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art and Onondaga County, is an outdoor architectural projection venue sited on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art dedicated to the public presentation of film, video and moving image arts. It is one of few projects in the United States dedicated to ongoing public projections and adds a new chapter to Central New York’s legacy as one of the birthplaces of video art.
