Jesse Harris

The work of Toronto-based artist Jesse Harris is rooted in expressions of radical art history, counter culture and “do-it-yourself” politics. Sourcing found and appropriated imagery from posters, advertisements, and album covers and comic, Harris creates message-oriented work that takes the form of fanzines, buttons, street-art, drawing and screen-print, as well as painting and sculpture. Often focused on community building, Harris’ work acts as a platform through which the artist addresses cultural limitations of expression.

Jesse Harris’ solo and group exhibitions include, Cooper Cole, Toronto, Canada, Tomorrow, Toronto, Canada, The Journal, Brooklyn, USA, Side Effects Gallery, Brooklyn, USA, Night Gallery, Los Angeles, USA, The Power Plant, Toronto, Canada, Plug in ICA, Winnipeg, Canada, amongst others.
