This event has ended.

Ilana Harris-Babou’s solo exhibition Clean Lines presents a new installation that draws on the branding strategies of luxury home-goods companies and the language of twentieth-century zoning laws in the US. The installation activates the surfaces and depths of the window display by expanding on the visual tactics and multilayered contents of her previous video work, Red Sourcebook (2018). In this new iteration, Harris-Babou juxtaposes the sleek lines and aspirational rhetoric of home-furnishing advertising with color-coded maps and texts from the exclusionary policies that continue to shape real estate development in the present.

Curated by second-year graduate students at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College: Eugenia Delfini, Zhenting Feng, Dain Oh, Zane Onckule, Julia Eilers Smith, Mathilde Walker-Billaud, and Jinglun Zhu.

*The curators will provide tours to the Broadway Windows during the opening
