Whitney Museum Opens 'Rachel Harrison Life Hack'

Rachel Harrison’s (b. 1966) first full-scale survey will track the development of her career over the past twenty-five years, incorporating room-size installations, autonomous sculpture, photography, and drawing. Harrison's complex works—in which readymades collude with invented forms—bring together the breadth of art history, the impurities of politics, and the artifacts of pop and celebrity culture. The exhibition includes approximately one hundred works spanning the early 1990s to the present, drawn from private and public collections throughout the world.
