(with additional support from the MA in Curatorial Practice, Rinehart School of Sculpture, and the Mixed Media Lecture Series).

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.
