Hilary Harp

Trained in sculpture at Parsons School of Design (BFA), Tyler School of Art (MFA), and at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Hilary Harp creates sculptures, installations and media projects which explore new hybrid forms, and challenge categories, particularly categories of high and low, male and female, technology and craft. Harp has exhibited her work widely nationally and internationally since 1995. Since 2003 she has collaborated with Suzie Silver on a range of projects. Their videos have screened at over one hundred festivals on four continents and are distributed by the Video Data Bank. Harp’s awards include a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, a Heinz Creative Heights Grant, and an Arizona Commission on the Arts Project Grant.  She has been awarded residencies at The Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, RI, Kohler Center for Arts/Industry in Sheboygan, WI and Djerassi Resident Artist Program in Woodside, CA.  Recent projects have begun to integrate interactivity and data-visualization in sound-sculptures. Harp is an Associate Professor of sculpture at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.
