    Lyle Ashton Harris: Today I Shall Judge Nothing That Occurs

    Whitney Museum, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

    99 Gansevoort Street

    New York,NY

    Purchase Tickets Here

    To celebrate the publication of Today I Shall Judge Nothing That Occurs (Aperture, 2017), a book of Lyle Ashton Harris’ Ektachrome archive, Harris is joined by an intergenerational group of artists and writers for a night of conversation and reflection.

    Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, Harris photographed the radical cultural scene that emerged in cities across the globe, finding expression in the galleries, nightclubs, and bedrooms of New York, London, Los Angeles, and Rome. His archive of 35 mm Ektachrome images has now been published alongside journal entries and recollections from a host of artistic and cultural figures. 

    Addressing the Ektachrome Archive in relation to the historical period in which it was produced and in light of contemporary political and social concerns, this series of talks examines how the archive has expanded from a personal document of a historically significant period to a contemporary living document, and how this work serves to complicate our collective memory.

    Speakers include: Gregg Bordowitz, Johanna Burton, Kimberly Drew, Christopher Y. Lew, Catherine Lord, Jason Moran, Mickalene Thomas, and Iké Ude.

    This event is co-organized by the Aperture Foundation and the Whitney Museum of American Art

    Lyle Ashton Harris (born in the Bronx, New York, 1965 and raised both in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and New York) received his BA from Wesleyan University, his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, and attended the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Studies Program.  His work has been exhibited worldwide, including at The Studio Museum in Harlem; The Whitney Museum of American Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; 52nd Venice Biennial, São Paulo Biennial in 2016 and the 2017 Whitney Biennial, among others. His work is represented in the permanent collections of major museums, most recently The Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 2014 Harris joined the Board of Trustees of the American Academy in Rome and was the recipient of the 2014 David C. Driskell Prize from the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and a 2016 fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and was appointed a trustee of the Tiffany Foundation.  He currently lives and works in New York City and is an Associate Professor of Art at New York University.
