William Camargo's work entails research, intervention and looking at new forms of displacement in local history. Starting with his long term series Origins & Displacements: Making Sense of Place, Histories & Possibilities, in which he responds to found archives of his hometown of Anaheim.  William 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 of their communities. Using a contemporary photography praxis, he poses the question of re-staging canonical images of  photographic history, 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.



This acclaimed weekly lecture series brings in artists, designers, and critical theorists from around the world. All lecture presentations are held in Art Building Room #133, 5:00pm - 6:00pm, unless otherwise indicated.
