Ilana Harris-Babou at the Queens Museum

After the Plaster Foundation

April 5 - August 16, 2020 


Twelve mostly New York-based artists ruminate on life and property, art's vexed role in gentrification, and the impact of race on having a home. From a beloved art-world figure who lived as a perpetual guest to an artist's mother performing her preparations for a visit from her realtor, portraits of individuals emerge on video, embodying the complexity of living within and without property in the digital age. Harris-Babou will be premiering a new video installation. Artists include Jennifer Bolande, Ilana Harris-Babou, Heather Hart, Simon Leung, Shawn Maximo, Museum of Capitalism, Sondra Perry, Douglas Ross, Peter Scott, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Caroline Woolard, and Betty Yu. 


After the Plaster Foundation is organized by Larissa Harris, Curator, with Sophia Marisa Lucas, Assistant Curator, and Lindsey Berfond, Assistant Curator, Exhibitions & Public Programs.
