LEO SAUL BERK
THE UNCERTAINTY OF ENCLOSURE
EXHIBITION – June 6 – August 17 | INOVA 2155 N. Prospect

Can a house make you who you are? The Uncertainty of Enclosure explores the impact of an unconventional residence—Bruce Goff’s Ford House in Aurora, IL—on the art of Leo Saul Berk. Berk’s sculptures, photographs, and videos re-imagine Goff ’s radical choice of materials, unusual volumes, and organic forms, and resonate at the intersection of craft and expressivity, intuition and measure.

Support for this exhibition is provided in part by grants from the Mary L. Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.

OPENING RECEPTION – 6-8 pm | June 6 | INOVA 2155 N. Prospect
Join exhibiting artist Leo Saul Berk and architectural historian Sidney Robinson as they discuss the development of Berk’s art and his ongoing connection to the Ford House.
