About the show

Orna-Mental State, a show featuring Katie Hovencamp, Liz Arenberg-Metcalf and Anna Margush, is a body of work about defining what makes someone or something beautiful. This exhibition questions beauty standards associated with the female body. Artist and curator Katie Hovencamp uses sculpture, video, drawing, and installation to fracture cultural constructs such as gender, beauty, and the the body politic to examine and critique social and historical assumptions.
