Cameron Clayborn is a sculptor, performance artist and community organizer. He received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2016.
Cameron works with people, opposites, weight, and imagery of death as material to complicate the aesthetics of the black, brown, and African-American body; with audience participation his body shifts from a state of vulnerability to powerful and sexy. He seeks to “turn inside out” the private discourses we have with ourselves and others to an open public dialogue.
Cameron has exhibited and performed at Chicago Art Department, Links Hall, Archer Ballroom Projects, Tritriangle, and Fat City Arts.
