HomeTraining is an Experiential Gallery Show premiering at the Historic H.L. Green Building in south downtown Atlanta from June 5-13. HomeTraining will feature the work of 18 female and female-identifying artists working in a diverse range of mediums including performance, sculpture, textile, painting, photography, short film and soundscape.
Over the last year-and-a-half, the pandemic has forced more than five million women out of the American workforce, and their labor participation rate has plummeted to a level not seen since 1988. Home spaces transformed into schools, childcare centers, studios and film sets in service of the necessary, often unpaid labor female artists engage in to make and sustain their craft. How have women artists responded to the national conversation surrounding “essential” work and workers? What has shifted to accommodate new creative spaces, closer quarters, isolating circumstances, diminishing funding and employment/industry instability? HomeTraining is an exploration of the work created when the convergence of home and artistic lives cultivates new ways of thinking, making and doing.
HomeTraining is curated and produced by the team behind HEREafter, Episodes 1 and 2: Kelly Bartnik and Kathleen Wessel. This Experiential Gallery Show is a highly curated multi-media body of work designed to immerse the audience member in a creative environment as they walk through a series of thematically-cohesive exhibits.
HomeTraining will be presented from June 5-13, at the Historic H.L. Green Building in Atlanta, GA. For tickets, visit www.freshtix.com/organizations/here.
