Curator Close-Up: Gregory Harris
Ginia Sweeney​
Coordinator of Museum Interpretation

In the video below, the second in our Curator Close-Up series, Assistant Curator of Photography Gregory Harris discusses acquiring two photographs for the High’s collection and the path the works took on their way to the gallery walls.

This fall, Harris acquired two photographs from artist Amy Elkins’s project Black is the Day, Black is the Night. This portfolio explores the psychological effects of solitary confinement through abstracted photographs Elkins made based on her correspondence with incarcerated men around the United States.
