Works by Monica Banks

Jan 14—Apr 10, 2022

Through April 10, three works by Monica Banks are on view in the VSG, or Very Small Gallery.

Part of Invisible, Banks’ malevolent English porcelain cakes spin ominously on revolving cake stands. Banks’ inedible confections give form to the chasm between material abundance and scarcity and offer a Let-Them-Eat-Cake parable for the nameless anxieties of the preceding year.

Hidden in the walls are three miniature art installations collectively called the VSG that are visible through small apertures. Each requires visitors to open their tiny doors and intimately peer through, revealing the secrets inside.
