Artist Floor Talk: Brian Campbell

Artist Floor Talk: Brian Campbell

Join artist Brian Campbell in conversation with Hastings City Art Gallery Curator, Clayton Gibson, about Campbell’s exhibition, Head Above The Water.

In this exhibition, Campbell builds an imaginary world using satire, fantasy and humour to contemplate some serious, possibly even profound, questions.

From a self-described 'fringe-dweller viewpoint', the Gisborne artist's work offers a bleak and darkly humorous vision of humanity’s future.

This exhibition features some of the most substantial works of Campbell's lengthy career. And in them, he takes viewers on a journey with a recurring cast of characters – along with some new ones – that he commissions to help relay his commentary on contemporary life.

Tackling issues from conspiracy theories to climate change, Campbell’s work mines the animal in us all as he monkeys around with our cultural pretensions in a voice steeped in humorous affection for humankind.

Come along to hear more about this exhibition!
