Timed to coincide with the Philadelphia Science Festival, Harper exhibits work from her Moon Studies and Star Scratches and Sun/Moon (Trying to See through a Telescope) series.
Her experimental photographs of the moon, stars, and sun ask basic questions about our place in the world, and about the nature of photography. The images included in this exhibition draw on scientific and artistic uses of photography to illuminate the mediums contradictory ability to verify empirical evidence and to create poetic connections between our environment and us.
Sharon Harper's work is in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, and the Portland Art Museum, Portland Oregon, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, and The New York Public Library among other collections. She has received numerous artist-in-residence fellowships including at the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, California, the MacDowell Colony, and at the Ucross Foundation. She was a Meredith S. Moody Residency Fellow and an Elizabeth Ames Fellow at Yaddo, and a Sam and Dusty Boynton Fellow at the Vermont Studio Center. The first monograph of her work, From Above and Below, will be published by Radius Books in the fall 2012. She is an Associate Professor, Visual and Environmental Studies Program at Harvard University.
