Rivers Institute for Contemporary Art & Thought and Amistad Research Center Present: A Conversation with Helen Cammock
April 20, 2022 6:30 pm–April 20, 2022 8:30 pm

A Conversation With Helen Cammock, April 20, 2022 from Amistad Research Center on Vimeo.

Rivers Institute for Contemporary Art & Thought & Amistad Research Center proudly invite you to join us for an evening of conversation with our first Amistad-Rivers Research Resident, Helen Cammock, in New Orleans.

Based in the UK, Cammock was the recipient of the 7th Max Mara Art Prize for Women and the 2019 Turner Prize, which she accepted in solidarity with her fellow nominees. Her practice in film, photography, print, text, song, and performance questions dominant narratives about Blackness, womanhood, wealth, power, poverty and vulnerability.

On Wednesday, April 20, Cammock will discuss her research in the Amistad Research Center’s archives, her preparations for her first North American film, commissioned by Rivers, and why she packed a trumpet for her first U.S. residency.

We hope you will join us to learn more about Helen’s practice, our program, and the art that collaboration makes possible. Reception to follow.
