Larissa Harris

Larissa Harris is a curator at the Queens Museum of Art, where she is developing programs to take place during and after QMA's upcoming expansion, which will add 50,000 square feet to the museum by 2012. Currently she is organizing the first U.S. solo exhibition of Sung Hwan Kim; with artist Jonathan Berger, the first survey of Peter Schumann of the Bread and Puppet Theater; and co-organizing a new residency in Corona, Queens, the largely new-immigrant neighborhood on which the museum borders. The first long-term resident is Tania Bruguera, invited in partnership with Creative Time. From 2004-2008 she was associate director at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT where she and staff commissioned and produced new work by Michael Smith, Damon Rich/ the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP), John Malpede, and Xavier Le Roy; instituted a visiting artist series (Vito Acconci/ Acconci Studio, Miranda July, Judith Barry, Seth Price, Dexter Sinister, and Rachel Harrison, among others); a student residency program; and a residency for Boston-area artists.
