Exhibition

\n

Campbell’s production is a site-specific grid of hundreds of photos.
Each photo shows a world citizen holding a piece of paper on which they have written a word they ha ve learned since 9-11 and 7-7.
“At each show I invite visitors to the exhibitions to have their photos taken as part of the project” says Clayto n.
The cumulative effect of this participatory project is prescient a nd formidable. It fosters an important and unique visual conversation betwe en various international communities\, exploring how people feel about thei r future aspirations\, dreams and anxieties.
Words We Have Learned Si nce 9-11 has been seen in numerous museums world wide since 2004\, includin g the Los Angeles County Museum of Art\; the Maison Européenne de la Photog raphie\, Paris\; Higher Bridges Art Center\, Enniskellen\, Northern Ireland \; Nam June Paik Art Center\, Korea\; the University of Nevada Las Vegas\; the WYSPA Art Institute\, Gdansk\, Poland\; a media center in Kurdestan\; a nd the Aaran Gallery in Tehran\, Iran.
The Project in London at UNIT 24 Gallery
Words We Have Learned Since 9-11 and 7-7 is being presente d at Unit 24.
Gallery visitors are asked to identify words they have learned since 9-11 – or words they knew but have taken on different meaning s.
They are then photographed with their words in the gallery.
Campbell collaborates with local artists who assist him with greeting the p ublic\, discussing their words\, taking the photographs\, and making the ph oto prints on site. These photographs enter into the exhibition\, which is a constantly expanding body of work now numbering in the hundreds of images .
