Available Works

Suzanne Harris (1940-1979) is best known for her glass sculpture installations and her performance art. Harris was one of the early artists of 112 Greene Street (SoHo) where artists would combine their genius to challenge the common field of knowledge of contemporary art. In 1973, she performed her first solo exhibition "Flying Machines" that displayed ‘an attempt for two to defy gravity with minimum aid: visually sadistic until set in motion. A most sensation of flying.’

Harris further submerged herself into her artistry by visiting Egypt to view the pyramids, studying their geometry to imitate the universal mathematic principals for her own work.

Harris founded the Natural History of the American Dancer, an improvisational and experimental dance company. Harris's work has exhibited at the MoMA, White Columns, and the Whitney Museum.
