Naomi Safran-Hon
A Room with No Exit
February 16, 2018 to April 01, 2018
Opening reception February 16, 2018, 7-9PM

Slag Gallery is pleased to present A Room with No Exit, the most recent body of work by Naomi Safran-Hon. 

Naomi Safran-Hon creates work that makes gripping statements about the fragility of human experience, the complicated nature of one’s home, and the vicissitudes of collective identities.  The power of her art is partially about unlocking the politics without making any of it disappear.  Safran-Hon creates a captivating aesthetic system; her process lingers at the intersection of photography, sculpture, and painting with a focus on the internal energy of the material, continuously emboldening the viewer to look beyond the surface.

A text by Sarah Workneh accompanies the exhibition. 

Naomi Safran-Hon received an MFA degree from Yale University (2010) and a BA degree from Brandeis University (2008).  She is also an alumna of Skowhegan Residency (2012) and of ART OMI Residency (2016). 

Selected exhibitions: Marfa Contemporary (TX); Hearst Galleries (NY), Delaware Center for Contemporary Art (DE); Brooklyn Museum (NY); Islip Art Museum (NY); Haifa Museum of Fine Art, Haifa (IL); Silber and Rosenberg Art Galleries Baltimore(MD); Brandt Gallery, Amsterdam (NL); Chase Family Gallery, Hartford (CT); Slag Contemporary (NY); Asya Geisberg Gallery (NY), just to name a few.
