Rachel Rampleman: Baby’s On Fire Inaugural Opening of Main Street Storefront Gallery

Rachel Rampleman is the inaugural artist for Squeaky Wheel’s new storefront window gallery—viewable 24 hours a day/7 days a week from Main Street. This storefront exhibition is a multi-media display to accompany her 4-floor exhibition and early career artist survey at CEPA Gallery entitled BABY’S ON FIRE, on view through May 2.

Additional video works by Rachel Rampleman are on view inside Squeaky Wheel’s microcinema during public viewing hours, Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 5:00pm, through May 2.

 

ABOUT RACHEL RAMPLEMAN

Born and raised in the suburbs of the Midwest, Rampleman’s various bodies of work explore subjects like gender, artifice, and spectacle through the tinge of a very American lens. Part directorial, part curatorial, and part anthropological, she probes into oft–overlooked elements of American culture to reveal an expanded landscape of American life. Her astute observations— awash with empathy and rife with psychological complexity—hint at an underlying dissonance that straddles the absurd.

Rampleman’s work frequently showcases strong female personalities—women who are simultaneously aberrant and superhuman—who challenge the common clichés of masculinity and femininity and who often assume roles typically associated with men. This is a landscape where sexual braggadocio, heavy-metal rock stardom, or muscularity have become characteristic of feminine prowess.

For her survey, Rampleman’s prolific body of work will be featured in every gallery of CEPA’s Market Arcade complex.
