CamLab is a collaboration between Jemima Wyman and Anna Mayer begun at the California Institute of the Arts in 2005. CamLab believes that a contemporary politics of pleasure must acknowledge the contiguity of language and body in facilitating a spectrum of experience that includes alterity, intimacy, and humor. This philosophy materializes in CamLab’s process, in particular the duo’s social practice work and relational object-making. Solo shows include Sea and Space Explorations (LA), 40000 (Chicago), and Dan Graham (LA). Group exhibitions include Torrance Museum of Art (LA), Fellows of Contemporary Art (LA), Track 16 (LA), and Galerie Califia (CZ). CamLab has performed in Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum, The Lounge at REDCAT, Wildness at the Silver Platter, and Summercamp Project Project. Recently CamLab’s ‘Whip What Stat’ and ‘Houndstooth Cameltoe’ videos were screened as part of the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum’s ArtLab+ program. In 2012 CamLab staged three event-based works at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
