Harry Dodge is an American sculptor, performer, video 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 solo and collaborative work has been exhibited at many venues nationally and internationally, including New Museum’s upcoming 40th anniversary exhibition TRIGGER (Sept-Jan), upcoming solo show Mysterious Fires at Grand Army Collective (Brooklyn), and (currently), Selections from the Permanent Collection at MOCA (LA), and Living Apart Together: Selections from the Collection at Hammer Museum (LA), as well as, the 2008 Whitney Biennial; a solo show entitled, Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in 2013; and Hammer Museum’s 2014 Biennial, Made in L.A. Dodge’s work is in collections including Museum of Modern Art (NY), Museum of Contemporary Art (LA), Hammer Museum (LA). His most recent solo exhibition was The Inner Reality of Ultra-Intelligent Life, at Pasadena’s Armory Center for the Arts, which followed 2015’s solo exhibition, The Cybernetic Fold at Wallspace, NY.

Visiting artists and curators enrich PNCA’s MFA in Visual Studies, a multidisciplinary, mentor-based program that encourages independent inquiry and supports critical approaches to the production of visual art. Grounded in one-on-one mentorships, the program is enhanced by exhibition opportunities, seminars, residencies, and national and international travel.
