Dreaming of Another Time: Collaboration and Inspiration
A conversation with artists Rebecca Campbell and Samantha Fields
UAM Permanent Collection Gallery, 7-9pm
UAM Curator of Exhibitions, Kristina Newhouse, will moderate a candid conversation with artists, Rebecca Campbell and Samantha Fields, probing the “call and response” improvisational process employed by the artists for the eighteen-month period prior to the exhibition as a means of dialogue and inspiration. Drawing upon personal histories as a common thread, Campbell and Fields produced images that, while familiar, conversely elicit an uneasiness in the viewer. This discursive discussion will illuminate the complexities of creativity, collaboration and reciprocity experienced by the artists in this process.
