Michelle Williams Gamaker

Michelle Williams Gamaker is an artist working in moving image and performance, often in dialogue with film history. Through an interrogation of cinema and its artifice, she recasts characters as fictional activists, proposing critical alternatives to colonial and imperialist storytelling in early 20th-century British and Hollywood studio films. Her work has featured in BFI FLARE LGBTQ+ Film Festival (2017) and BFI’s LFF Experimenta programme (2018, 2021) and is in the Arts Council Collection. Her trilogy Dissolution recently screened for MattFlix and I Multiply Each Day, at Gus Fisher Gallery, Auckland, and her work will also feature in The London Open 2022 at Whitechapel Gallery this summer.
