Artist Theodore A. Harris, “Dis-placed by Conflict: Artist Lecture and Conversation” is interviewed by art historian Jennifer Zarro, discussing his work. Harris is speaking in a visual language of mixed media collage, assemblage installation, and image poetry, which raise critical questions about how dis-placement redirects our lives, whether it is anti-immigration policy, slavery, war, white supremacy, climate change, car bombings, or “stop and frisk” formalism in art.
Harris is a collagist, poet and essayist on the intersection of art and politics. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in galleries and museums. He is the founding director of the Institute for Advanced Study in Black Aesthetics.
