Chris Larson and the Walker Art Center

Harpo Foundation is pleased to provide project support for a new video installation by Chris Larson at the Walker Art Center’s Medtronic Gallery in 2016.

Chris Larson creates ambitious sculptural installations and films with unique narrative structures, often in response to specific sites. The new work, entitled, “Land Speed Record” after a live album by acclaimed 1980s St. Paul punk band Hüsker Dü, focuses on objects and memories left behind from the childhood home of band member Grant Hart, which partially burned down in 2011.
