AFTER THE PLASTER FOUNDATION, OR, “WHERE CAN WE LIVE?”
—–
As part of our new exhibition After the Plaster Foundation, or, “Where can we live?”Ilana Harris-Babou presents Fine Lines, 2020, starring her mother Sheila Harris, who owns a home in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. In this video and sculpture, YouTube makeup tutorials merge with solicitation letters from real estate companies in a satirical take on race, property ownership, and misplaced desire.

As the artist speaks on the exhibition’s online publication about a real estate market in which the value of a home is tied to the race of its residents, Harris-Babou refers to scholar and activist Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor’s 2019 book Race For Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership.

Integrada en nuestra nueva exposición After the Plaster Foundation, or, “Where can we live?”(“Después del Plaster Foundation o ‘¿dónde podemos vivir?’”), Ilana Harris-Babou presenta Fine Lines, 2020, protagonizada por su madre Sheila Harris, que tiene una casa en Crown Heights, Brooklyn. En esta obra, que consta de un vídeo y una escultura, se mezclan los tutoriales de maquillaje de YouTube con cartas de propuestas de empresas inmobiliarias en una perspectiva satírica sobre la raza, la propiedad y el deseo mal enfocado.En la publicación online de la exposición, la artista comenta la situación de un mercado inmobiliario en el que el valor de una casa está ligado a la raza de sus residentes, y hace referencia al libro de 2019 de la académica y activista Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor Race For Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership (“Raza por beneficios: sobre cómo los bancos y la industria inmobiliaria debilitaron el acceso a la propiedad de la gente negra”).

This conversation explores the history, form, and process behind the creation of the powerful new Memorial to Enslaved Laborers at the University of Virginia. The grounds—designed by Thomas Jefferson and now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site—were built and maintained by 4000 enslaved men, women, and children.
