New York Artists Equity/Equity Gallery of New York City and Oklahoma Contemporary present the collaboration You Don’t Belong Here, an exhibition connecting two cities to a legacy of racial violence in American history. The exhibition features the works of Crystal Z Campbell and Bryce Zackery at the 2018 edition of SPRING/BREAK Art Show.
Crystal Z Campbell’s installation emerges from her research into the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, incorporating video, sound and altered archival photography. Harlem-based artist Bryce Zackery draws inspiration from the New York City Draft Riots of 1863 for his mixed-media sculptural wall paintings. During these times of unrest, You Don’t Belong Here portrays the alienation of Americans from their own cities and homes and examines the echoing consequences of these historical events.
Crystal Z Campbell is a visual artist and writer of African-American, Filipino and Chinese descent based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Campbell uses art as a tool and history as material to rupture collective memory, imagine social transformations and question the politics of witnessing.
Bryce Zackery is a painter and sculptor based in New York City. His work has been exhibited in New York at Regina Rex Gallery, H\D: Harlem Dream and the Frieze Art Fair.
