Rachel Harrison

This summer, the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College (CCS Bard) will present the first major survey of New York based artist Rachel Harrison. Entitled Consider the Lobster, after an essay by the late David Foster Wallace, this survey exhibition will encompass over ten years of large-scale installations by Harrison, all of which will be reconfigured for the CCS Bard galleries, as well as a number of the autonomous sculptural and photographic works for which she is best known. In addition to the survey of Rachel Harrison’s work in the CCS Bard Galleries, we have also invited six artists, including Nayland Blake, Tom Burr, Harry Dodge, Alix Lambert, Allen Ruppersberg, and Andrea Zittel, to collaborate with her to re-install works from the Marieluise Hessel Collection. Consider the Lobster is a collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery in London where the exhibition will be on view from April 27 through June 20, 2010.
