Lyle Ashton Harris Remembers Marlon Riggs

Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, a radical cultural scene emerged in cities across the globe, finding expression in the galleries, nightclubs, and bedrooms of New York, London, Los Angeles, and Rome. In Lyle Ashton Harris: Today I Shall Judge Nothing That Occurs, the artist’s archive of 35 mm Ektachrome images are presented alongside journal entries and recollections by contributors. Here, Harris remembers a photograph he took of filmmaker, educator, poet, and gay rights activist Marlon Riggs.
