About The Artist

Adam Harrison is a Vancouver-based artist whose work considers aspects of the production and reception of art. For Back room, Vancouver Aquarium (Live coral reef exhibit), Harrison photographed the hidden mechanics of a public aquarium. By revealing the complicated filtration and lighting systems required for viewing the illusory diorama, this work suggests the similarly hidden processes required for making photographs.

A strong emerging talent, Adam Harrison’s work is exhibited nationally — most recently at Monte Clark Gallery (Vancouver) and Dyan Marie Projects (Toronto). He is also the co-curator of CSA Space in Vancouver.
