Camara Taylor is an amorphous blob (b.1627) who works with their various selves and others to produce sound and image-based works, alongside events, exhibitions, texts and a roaming zine library. Camara’s work is articulated within a framework of refusal and is concerned with practices of survival amidst the weather.

Camara was previously a committee member at Transmission Gallery, Glasgow (2016-2018) and a participant in Constellations, an artist working group programme conceived by UP Projects and Flat Time House. They failed to deliver Fieldwork, Hospitalfield’s International Summer School (2018) and are currently a programme facilitator for the Race, Rights and Sovereignty series (Glasgow School of Art Cultural Engagement & GSA Students’ Association).

Solo shows include Flourish, The Gallow Gate, Glasgow and Shft+Ctrl+Save, a collaboration with artist Isaac Kariuki, Meta Gallery (North Miami Museum of Contemporary Art), US (2015). Selected Group exhibitions include Roadmaps, CCA Intermedia Gallery, Glasgow, supported by Glasgow International (2018); Rum Retort, Tobacco Warehouse, Greenock, (2016) and Visions of the Future: Women, Autonomy and Publishing, Islamic Human Rights Commission, London (2015). Camara’s film and sound works have been screened at venues across the UK and internationally, most recently at Coventry Art Space and the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas.

In addition to ongoing collaborations with artists including Sulaïman Majali and Alberta Whittle, Camara is currently working towards an exhibition with artist Andrew Black at Celine Gallery, Glasgow (2018) and a curatorial project at the Reid Gallery, Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow (2019).
