Ilene Berman: Unnatural States

Gallery 210 is pleased to present the exhibition Unnatural States by Ilene Berman. The exhibition opens on February 8th at 4PM with an artist’s talk followed by a public reception.

This installation of institutional floor tiles, chalkboard, several dozen soft-sculpture student desks and a two-channel video asks if art has the capacity to adequately address the structural concerns of our day and is it possible for an artist to engage the viewer in these concerns by creating spaces for them to think and feel. Berman writes that she is creating a space that asks the visitor ‘. . . to consider the social structures that prevent schools from being places to practice freedom and asks who is hurt by and who benefits from this constructed absence of freedom?

This exhibition is made possible by the Missouri Arts Council, the Center for the Humanities, and the College of Arts and Sciences at UMSL.
