Published as an e-book in 2012 by Badlands Unlimited, Rachel Harrison's The Help, A Companion Guide uses the artist's documentation and research to generate a visual compendium to The Help, her solo exhibition that same year at Greene Naftali. The exhibition's title shares its name with Harrison's photograph of the back door maintenance entrance to Marcel Duchamp’s Étant donnés: 1° la chute d'eau, 2° le gaz d'éclairage . . . (Given: 1. The Waterfall, 2. The Illuminating Gas . . . ) (1946–66) at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
We are pleased to present The Help, A Companion Guide on the Media page, alongside a selection of complementary Texts as part of Greene Naftali’s ongoing From the Archive series.
