Cameron Downey and Crystal Z Campbell

WEDS. 9/21 7 PM. Free.

Told through a VHS tape and 35mm film, artists Cameron Downey and Crystal Z Campbell dig into the histories of North Minneapolis and Bed Stuy Brooklyn. Kicking off their residency at the Walker, Downey’s film Hymn of Dust, it “illuminates adorned youth in North Minneapolis’s sculptural, toxic metal wasteland along the Mississippi River.” Cameron’s Go-Rilla Means War stems from footage from a civil rights–era theater that has been demolished and illustrated the “complexities of Black cultural erasure and restoration.” Following the film showings, the artists sit down for a conversation.
