Join us for a School of Art & Design Visitors Series lecture by William Camargo.

William Camargo’s work entails research, intervention, and looking at new forms of displacement in local history. In his long-term series Origins & Displacements: Making Sense of Place, Histories & Possibilities, he responds to found archives of his hometown of Anaheim.

Camargo will describe a brief history of photography, as an imperialist/colonial tool, to a new history of artists of color using the camera to create a counter-history.

He poses the question of re-staging canonical images of photographic histories, such as in his series After Divola, As Far As I Can Get in 10 Seconds, which comments on the act of running away in a brown body.
