Robert Harrison

10 September – 03 October 1992
Robert Harrison, an American architectural ceramicist, will be artist in residence at the University of South Australia, School of Design, Ceramics Department, during August – September 1992.

Harrison has worked in the ceramics field for over fourteen years, focusing on sculptural concerns for the past seven years. Much of his more recent work has involved site specific, architecturally based, large–scale outdoor sculpture and the use of varied materials. He has exhibited widely throughout the western United States and Canada.

Since 1985, Robert Harrison has held the position of Assistant Head, Ceramics Studio (Summer Head, Ceramics Studio) at the Banff Centre School of Fine Arts, Banff, Alberta, Canada.

The exhibition will feature an installation “with the notion of ‘site’ being paramount prior to conception”.
