Confederation Centre Art Gallery Welcomes Adjunct Curator

-Multidisciplinary artist, writer, curator Charles Campbell joins CCAG staff-

Confederation Centre is pleased to announce the addition of Charles Campbell as adjunct curator with the Confederation Centre Art Gallery (CCAG) .

Campbell is a Jamaican-born multidisciplinary artist, writer and curator, who grew up on Prince Edward Island. Using performance, sculpture, and installation, his work investigates the future prospects that have become possible in the wake of colonization.

Campbell will work remotely with the CCAG on special projects from his home in Victoria, B.C.  including an upcoming contribution to the national initiative, FIELDTRIP: Art Across Canada.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the team at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery,” remarks Campbell. “Growing up in Charlottetown, the encounters with the arts at Confed Centre are among my most memorable experiences. I’ll be using the post of adjunct curator to research overlooked and underserved Canadian artists and present visions from BIPOC artists that can expand our world.”

He previously served as chief curator of the National Gallery of Jamaica where he embraced vernacular styles and street art from Jamaica’s vibrant urban communities and expanded the national canon.

“Having Charles Campbell’s perspective and expertise available as we develop future programs will be invaluable,” offers Gallery Director Kevin Rice. “We certainly enjoyed working with Charles when we presented his artwork as part of P.E.I.’s Art in the Open Festival and we now look forward to his curatorial contributions.”

The artist has exhibited widely in North America, the Caribbean, and Europe including: Rideau Hall, the Havana Biennial, Brooklyn Museum, and Perez Art Museum Miami. He holds a B. FA from Concordia University and an M.A. in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths College, University of London.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
