Lyle Ashton Harris Remembers Marlon Riggs

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, coalescing in a presentation of what Harris has described as “ephemeral moments and emblematic figures . . . against a backdrop of seismic shifts in the art world, the emergence of multiculturalism, the second wave of AIDS activism, and incipient globalization.”

Lyle Ashton Harris (born in the Bronx, New York, 1965) received 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 Whitney, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; 52nd Venice Biennial; and São Paulo Biennial in 2016. In 2016, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship. He currently is an associate professor of art at New York University.

Johanna Burton, formerly the director of the graduate program at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, is the director and curator of education and public programs at the New Museum, New York.
