MARY MOONEY + MELISSA HUANG: GLASS CEILING, BLACK MIRROR
The Bankers Alley Hotel / 222 3rd Ave. N August 1, 2023 - March 1, 2024
Mary Mooney, Melissa Huang
The Bankers Alley Hotel is proud to showcase the vibrant creations of emerging artists in our three floors of exhibition space. On view in our Second Floor Gallery is Glass Ceiling, Black Mirror. Using unabashedly bold and feminine color palettes, artists Melissa Huang and Mary Mooney explore the pressures and expectations that American culture places on women and femme people to perform stereotypes associated with femininity. From how women look and dress, to how they take up space in their work and in their homes, there is a path and code to follow. Huang and Mooney find ways to convey what those boxes are, how they fit into them, and how they break out of them.
