Kamari Bright is a St. Louis-born videopoet and multimedia artist heavily inspired by human psychology and the growth and healing process. Her work, which explores the mechanisms of communication through the interplay of imagery and language, has been showcased at the International Poetry Film Festival of Thuringia, the Academy Award-qualifying HollyShorts Film Festival, the Seattle Art Museum, TriQuarterly, Moss, the International Video Poetry Festival of Athens, and more. The 2023 Bainbridge Island Museum of Art BRAVA Emerging Artist is currently developing a multimedia project on the influence of Christian folklore on present-day misogyny, as well as a series of videopoems examining the impact of environment on collective well-being. She is a community-taught creator and advocate who lives, loves, and eats on the land of the Duwamish.
