On January 28, 2013, Artist on Art had the incredible privilege and honor to speak with Environmental & Ecological Artists, Professors Emeriti Newton & Helen Mayer Harrison about their work and upcoming exhibition, The Harrison Studio: On Mixing, Mapping and Territory, at the Mary Porter Sesnon Gallery at UCSC.
The Harrison Studio has been producing multi-media collaborative dialogic installation Eco-Activist art internationally for over 40 years. After teaching at UC San Diego in the Art department for nearly thirty years, they retired and moved to Santa Cruz. Since then, they are back teaching in the Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program and began the Center for the Force Majeure Studies.
The Harrison’s lecture is free, open to the public, and takes place February 6, from 4:30-6pm at the Digital Arts Research Center with a Reception from 6:00–7:30pm at the Sesnon Gallery in Porter College. The show runs from February 6 to March 15, 2013.
