Ilana Harris-Babou Guided Tour

Ilana Harris-Babou’s solo exhibition Revelations presents recent video installations, collages, and ceramics navigating contradictory desires bound within our all-consuming image culture. Using the aesthetics of advertising and social media DIY influencing within wellness culture, Harris-Babou’s works stage darkly humorous and subversive revelations about material quick fixes for structural inequities. Rather than offering a critique of biblical proportions, Harris-Babou’s works disclose Black self-determinations.
