> DESCRIPTION

Artist Lyle Ashton Harris and Jonathan D. Katz will discuss a selection of recent work, exploring the conflation between narratives of the personal and the political. Known for his self-portraits and usage of pop culture icons, ranging from Michael Jackson to Billie Holiday and Silvio Berlusconi to Zinedine Zidane, Harris inhabits and teases our notions of perceptions. Born in New York City, Harris has cultivated a diverse artistic practice ranging from photographic media, collage, installation and performance. His work has been shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the 52nd Venice Biennale. Harris’ commissioned work is also featured in a wide range of publications, including The New York Times Magazine and the New Yorker.

Lyle Ashton Harris is an associate professor at New York University.

This lecture is part of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art Lecture Series in collaboration with the Visual Studies Department at University at Buffalo.
