Colin Campbell’s pioneering video art inspired a generation of multimedia artists. While he produced more than fifty videos, including the influential Sackville, I’m Yours (1972), Hollywood and Vine (1977), and Bad Girls (1980), Campbell left an equally large impact through his advocacy. A dedicated teacher, he played an active role in the artist-run center movement and established Canada’s largest video art distributor, Vtape. Collecting Campbell’s scripts, articles, artist’s books, and fiction for the first time, More Voice-Over reveals the witty and playful mind behind the camera. Exploring sexuality, gender, the AIDS crisis, public arts policy, and more, these texts shed new light on Colin Campbell’s place at the center of video art’s rise.
