Graduate Center Auditorium

Mark Harris is an artist, writer, and curator. His approaches to making artwork are linked by an interest in the imagery of intoxication as a form of utopian representation considered as alternative agency to militant strategies of the historical avant-gardes. Primarily working in video, painting, and drawing, he has most recently been reconfiguring photographs derived from hippy communities of the 1960s to consider them as future-oriented wish images. Currently coordinator of critical studies on the MFA at Goldsmiths College, London, Mark Harris’s degrees include MA in Painting from The Royal College of Art, London; MA in Continental Philosophy from University of Warwick, Coventry; and PhD in Philosophy from Goldsmiths College, London.
