Betsy Odom: Oh No

@ Terrain

704 Highland Avenue, Oak Park, Illinois

Opening Sunday, March 9th, from 1PM - 4PM

On view through Wednesday, April 2nd

OH NO is an interactive installation designed to satiate the anxieties brought on by a desire for the comfort of suburban life. Viewers are invited to land frisbees imprinted with the letters O,H, and N on the roof until a jumble of both words and gibberish emerges. Viewers will be invited to toss and take frisbees throughout the exhibition.

Betsy Odom received her MFA from Yale University in 2007 in sculpture, and a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2002. Odom’s sculptures explore the cultural information embedded within materials and craft. Her work has been seen in group- and solo-exhibitions both nationally and internationally, including exhibitions at Field Projects (Brooklyn), ThreeWalls Gallery (Chicago), and Amel Bourorina Gallery (Berlin). Her work is part of the West Collection through the 2012 Acquisition Prize. Odom lives and works in Chicago.

Located at 704 Highland Ave. in Oak Park, IL, Terrain is dedicated to featuring interventions into the conventional landscape of a front yard by emerging as well as established artists who have been invited to create a site – specific work. Artists are chosen for their interest in challenging the space between public and private, decoration and function, figure and ground.
