Lyle Ashton Harris

Lyle Ashton Harris explores gender and identity politics—often using his own body as the subject. He has a pedigree most artists can only dream about: he has been a core critic at Yale University School of Art, he received a Rome Prize Fellowship in Visual Arts at the American Academy in Rome, he taught at New York University and California Institute of the Arts, and he has been reviewed by Flash Art, Artforum, Frieze, Art in America, and Artnews. In 2010, Gregory R. Miller & Co published Lyle Ashton Harris: Excessive Exposure, a monograph of his Polaroid prints that features an introduction by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., an essay by Okwui Enwezor and an interview by Chuck Close. His work has appeared in exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Corcoran Gallery, as well as in publications including The New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, and Vibe.
