Camel Collective

Anthony Graves and Carla Herrera-Prats have worked as Camel Collective since 2005. They draw on narrative theater and dramaturgy, combining them with research into marginal histories, critical pedagogy, and entertainment. These cross-disciplinary works involve collaboration from among a variety of participants. The collective writes theatricalized scenarios into exhibitions for the productive frictions generated when genres cross—discourse becomes a chorus, documents become a strike, a political impasse becomes an occasion for painting. Their projects are largely informed by the works and methods of Bertolt Brecht and the social portraiture of the Weimar avant-garde. Camel’s exhibitions and performances have been presented at Casa del Lago, Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros in Mexico City; the Trienal Poli/Gráfica de San Juan Puerto, Puerto Rico; Overgaden Institut for Samtidskunst and Aarhus Museum, in Denmark; and Artist’s Space, Art in General, Exit Art, and MassMoCA, in the US.
