Christopher Harris is among artists selected for the inaugural exhibition of the Orlando Museum of Art Florida Prize in Contemporary Art.

The invitational exhibition will feature ten of the most progressive and exciting artists working in the State today. Additionally, one of these outstanding artists will be selected to receive the Orlando Museum of Art Florida Prize in Contemporary Art a significant monetary award. The award and invitational exhibition recognizes the achievement and potential of these artists and encourages their continued innovation and creation of new work.

The exhibition, which runs from June 21 until September 7, features work in a wide array of artistic practices, often combining media and materials in inventive ways. Many are creating work from reclaimed materials and imagery appropriated from historic and popular culture. The diversity of the work seen in the exhibition reflects the dynamic and challenging nature of art today.

Harris’s award-winning films have screened at festivals, museums and cinematheques throughout North America and Europe.
