“I see myself involved in a project of resuscitation—giving life back to the black male body. I’m teasing at the multiplicities of black male experiences, exploring different subject positions, rather than just recycling the fantasy/projection of the available black stud. Part of the way I complicate this project is by including different representations of myself in most of my work.” — Lyle Ashton Harris
