Harry Dodge is a Los Angeles-based artist and writer whose interdisciplinary practice is characterized by its explorations of relation, materiality, and the unnamable with a special focus on ecstatic contamination. His work has been exhibited at venues nationally and internationally. Solo exhibitions include Works of Love (JOAN, Los Angeles, 2018; traveled to Tufts University Art Gallery, Medford, 2019); Mysterious Fires (Grand Army Collective, Brooklyn, 2017); The Inner Reality of Ultra-Intelligent Life (Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, 2016); The Cybernetic Fold (Wallspace, New York, 2015); and Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy (Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, 2013). Recent group exhibitions include Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon (New Museum’s 40th anniversary exhibition, New York, 2018); Selections from the Permanent Collection (MOCA, Los Angeles, 2017); and Living Apart Together (Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2017). His solo and collaborative works are held in numerous prominent institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. In 2017, Dodge was awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship. Dodge is regular faculty in the School of Art at California Institute of the Arts. His new book, My Meteorite (Or, Without the Random There Can Be No New Thing)—a meditation on matter, artistic practice, and entanglement—is forthcoming in early 2020 from Penguin Press.
