Sharon Harper

Terra Cognita

Entrance: free (with admission museum)

From Above and Below

Sharon Harper’s work explores technology and perception. She photographed the night sky over the Canadian city of Banff. The use of long shutter speeds causes the tracks of stars to show up like scratches of light. Light pollution and clouds pulling over become visual distortions. Harper holds an M.F.A. from the School of Visual Art in New York City. She is currently an Associate Professor of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University. Her work is in permanent collections at the MOMA in NY and the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, among other collections.

Venue: Restaurant Museum Belvédère.
The lecture is English spoken.
