Mariah Garnett: Dreamed This Gateway

Nina and Michael Zilkha Gallery
On View: June 10–August 28, 2022

Who speaks and who is silenced? What histories or facets of a culture do we privilege and why? How do we acknowledge our history while also rewriting, repairing, and moving beyond our past trauma? Los Angeles-based artist and filmmaker Mariah Garnett (b. 1980) asks these questions and others in the first U.S. solo museum presentation of her work, Mariah Garnett: Dreamed This Gateway. The exhibition features new and recent operatic videos, including a multi-channel installation commissioned by CAMH. Working in collaboration with experimental vocalist Holland Andrews, Cairo-based documentary playwright Raphaël Khouri, and professional opera singers Christopher Paul Craig and Breanna Sinclairé, Garnett has created a new body of work inspired by an archive of materials related to the enigmatic and remarkable life and artistic output of her great-great-aunt, Ruth Lynda Deyo (1884–1960).
