The work of artist Kira Lynn Harris posits an intersection of the formal concerns of space, light and the phenomenological with issues of individual subjectivity. Based in New York City, her art has been widely exhibited during the past several years in galleries and museums in California; New York; Miami; Houston, TX; Washington, DC; and Italy. Working in photography, video and installation, Ms. Harris has had solo exhibits at the Bruno Marina Gallery in Brooklyn, NY and at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts and a site specific project on extended view at PS 1/MoMA. She was a 2001–2002 Artist in Residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Other residencies include Art Omi and the Center for Photography at Woodstock. Her work has been favorably reviewed by The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times among other publications. Kira Lynn Harris is a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts and completed the Whitney Independent Study Program in 1999. Her work will be on view in a solo exhibit at the CUE Art Foundation in Chelsea, New York City. Ms. Harris explains, "My projects often provide a disorienting encounter for the viewer: in my installations I am concerned with destabilization and re-orientation. To achieve this I often create architectural and environmental interventions – by using light and reflective surfaces; by inverting subject and object or figure and ground; and/or by reversing up and down, exterior and interior."
