dm contemporary is pleased to present Suburbia Revisited, a three person show featuring recent works by Steven Baris, Lisa Dahl, and Ross Racine. The exhibition opens on Saturday, February 16th and remains on view through Saturday, April 6th, 2013.
Suburbia, and the suburban way of life, has long aroused deep sentiments in critics and supporters alike. Often vilified, and sometimes idealized, the suburbs are synonymous with the paradoxical and illusive American Dream – a subject frequently revisited by artists, writers, and filmmakers since World War II. Alternately utopian and dystopian, suburbia continues to provoke, inspire, and provide material for the three artists in this exhibition. Suburbia Revisited re-examines the subject from these three artists’ distinct perspectives.
Steven Baris was born in Aberdeen, Washington, and grew up on various Indian reservations in California, Montana, and Washington State. He currently lives and teaches art in the Philadelphia area. He received a B.A. from The Evergreen State College and an M.F.A. from the Tyler School of Art. His work has been exhibited in many nationally-recognized galleries and cultural institutions.
Lisa Dahl was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She currently lives and works in New York City. She received her B.A. from Bowdoin College, and M.F.A. from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. Her work has been exhibited in museums, and galleries both nationally and internationally.
Ross Racine was born in Montreal, Quebec. He currently lives and works in Montreal and New York. Racine received his B.F.A. from Université du Québec à Montréal, and his M.F.A. and Graduate Diploma in Computer Science from Concordia University, Montreal. His work has been exhibited in the U.S. as well as internationally at venues of note, such as the Musée d'Art moderne et d'Art contemporain (Liège, Belgium), and Rondo Sztuki Gallery (Katowice, Poland).
