Visiting Artist: Ilana Harris-Babou
January 27 @ 5:30 pm
Wednesday January 27
5:30p MT / Zoom
Ilana Harris-Babou’s work spans sculpture and installation, and is grounded in video. She speaks the aspirational language of consumer culture and uses humor as a means to digest painful realities. Her work confronts the contradictions of the American Dream: the unreliable notion that hard work will lead to upward mobility and economic freedom. She has exhibited throughout the US and Europe, including The Whitney Museum of Art and The Studio Museum, with solo exhibitions at The Museum of Arts & Design and HESSE FLATOW (NYC). She has been reviewed in the New Yorker, Artforum, and Art in America.
