Join ArtTable for Artist Breakfasts, a series of conversations with artists. These intimate monthly breakfasts feature leading figures in the visual arts in discussion with curators, academics, and critics. This month we will hear from Ilana Harris-Babou, whose work was included in last year’s Whitney Biennial and whose exhibition Decision Fatigue, opens this month at Hesse Flatow.

About the artist: 

Ilana Harris-Babou uses music videos, cooking shows, and home improvement television as material in an abject exploration of the American Dream. She works primarily in ceramic sculpture and video installation, and frames messy scenes with studio lighting and HD video in order to ask questions about intimacy, violence, and consumption.

Harris-Babou showed in the 2019 Whitney Biennial and in a 2017 exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. In a well-reviewed New York gallery show she parodied Restoration Hardware’s rugged chic aesthetic. Her Reparation Hardware video, inspired by the chain’s own video promoting its salvaged wood furniture line, suggests a hypothetical reparations plan for the descendants of enslaved Americans.

Harris-Babou received an MFA in New Genres from Columbia University and a BA in Art from Yale University. She has exhibited her work throughout the United States and Europe. See more about Ilana here and here.
