This session we will be connecting virtually with Ilana Harris-Babou, an artist in our exhibition Reality Flex, which closes 10/28 in the gallery. 

Ilana Harris-Babou’s practice is interdisciplinary-- spanning sculpture and installation, and grounded in video. She speaks the aspirational language of consumer culture; mimicking cooking shows, music videos, and home improvement television, among others. She uses the seductive sheen of entertainment as a Trojan Horse to get into the viewer's line of sight. Once seen, the work reimagines the abject failures of material desire. Ilana confronts the contradictions of the American Dream; the ever unreliable notion that hard work will lead to upward mobility and economic freedom.

Most recently she was a 2017 Fellow at the MAD Museum, was included in the 2019 Whitney Biennial, and had a solo show with Hesse Flatow Gallery in March 2020. She is currently a resident at Pioneer Works in Red Hook Brooklyn.
