Open June 23 – July 24
Art Gym Gallery is excited to present Inculcation, with new work from artist Sharifa Moore. Please join us for an opening reception on Thursday June 23 from 6-9PM.
Inculcation represents a construction of a world saturated with images—advertisements for cleaning products, soap, and other tools of domesticity—Visual media that blends into the blur of the everyday messages that communicate the ideals of the dominant class. This exhibition explores experimental filmmaking practices that investigate the domestic space, evolving expectations of those who identify as women, and the ways that ideologies are inculcated early in our lives.
