Drawing on the metaphor of the watering hole as a place of rejuvenation as well as a site of violence, this series of Duraflex prints accompanied by a pair of mixed-media works seeks to investigate the “Dahmer-esque.” The Watering Hole” was first exhibited in 1996 at Jack Tilton Gallery in New York, in 2008 as part of a mid-career survey exhibition of Harris’ work at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and at Art Basel Miami by CRG Gallery in 2012. In 2013, the series was collected by the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
