From Monday, January 30 through Sunday, March 5, 2023 at Wesleyan’s Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, North Gallery, you can visit Liquid Gold, Ilana Harris-Babou BA ’13’s most recent exhibition.
According to the exhibition website, “Liquid Gold is the first chapter in a series of installations by artist Ilana Harris-Babou. Referring to the value assigned to human breastmilk, Liquid Gold looks at the history of breastfeeding as it has been narrativized, advertised, and suggested for Black mothers in America. Like other projects by Harris-Babou, this exhibition, composed of both a video installation and a sculpture, examines the consumerism and complexity of the wellness industry, while bringing attention to the racialized social structures that create the parameters for an individual’s agency in making personal health decisions.”
Museum Hours: Tuesday through Sunday, Noon to 5pm
