Mark Harris is an artist, critic, and curator.
His diverse approaches to making artwork are linked by an interest
in the imagery of intoxication and its role as a form of utopian
representation where it functions as an alternative to the strategies
of the historical avant-garde. He uses different media including
painting, installation, video, and photography. Harris's recent
solo and collaborative exhibitions include Streets of London,
a video installation, with Peter Lloyd Lewis, at 1 000 000 mph,
London (2003); the Trans Hudson Gallery, New York (2001); the Economist
Building, London, with Carmel Buckley (1999); and Wall of Sound,
with Jem Finer, at the Trans Hudson Gallery, Jersey City (1996).
In addition his work has appeared in exhibitions in London, Munich,
Peterborough, Canada, New Zealand, and Vienna. Among his many publications
are articles in Miser & Now, NY Arts, ARTicle
Press, and MAKE Magazine, as well as articles and reviews
in Art Monthly. Harris is currently a visiting artist
in the Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture departments at Virginia
Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia.
