> DESCRIPTION

Over the past ten years, Lyle Ashton Harris has created a series of over 200 intimate, sepia-toned portraits he has termed “Chocolate Polaroids,” capturing each sitter’s face and back. Lyle Ashton Harris: Self/Portrait, organized by Exhibition Coordinator and Program Associate Thomas J. Lax, presents over a dozen large-format Polaroid photographs portraying Harris’s friends, family, colleagues and self from 1998–2008, examining the artist’s long-standing interest in self-portraiture, performance and intersecting communities.
