Date(s) - Wednesday, May 13th

dsc0801-version-2Having an imaginative mind is an incredible asset, especially in these isolating times. Known for his captivating and thought-provoking multi-media installations, David R. Harper works daily in an ‘out of the box’ mindset and provokes viewers to experience his creatively stimulating environments in much the same way.

Continuing to work amid a landscape that feels uncertain and surreal, David will talk about meditative and creative practices of the studio, recent endeavors like the solo exhibition, ‘My Own Personal Ghost,’ which was displayed at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, as well as current and upcoming projects.

This program will be presented virtually via Youtube and Facebook. You can also get it delivered to your email by signing up for our e-newsletter here below.

David R. Harper (B. Toronto, ON. Lives and Works in Philadelphia, PA) received his BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Fiber and Material Studies.

Harper’s work employs both traditional and non-traditional materials such as embroidery, ceramic, and casting materials such as salt and charcoal in a cross-disciplinary manner to create objects installations that grapple with notions of loss, love, feelings of belonging and how we use objects to inform our notions of self.
