EXH: “Equal Rites: The Art of Michael D. Harris” @ Hammonds House Museum

“Equal Rites: The Art of Michael D. Harris”

July 10th – September 11th, 2011

This exhibition will explore the work of Michael D. Harris through several phases and themes over the past 15 years.  It also will include duets with other artists; creative collaborations built upon compositions of his creation. The work, in turns, reflects the DuBois idea of double consciousness — that inner conflict we experience as an object of essentialist disdain from without and inner (both personal and social) affirmation — and explorations of social and historical rootedness within African Diasporia cultures.  In the end, the work is autobiographical and expresses Harris’s conceptual and aesthetic tendencies, strengths, concerns and imagination.
