Closing Reception: Thursday, November 21st, 7pm - 9pm


The Bakery Atlanta is excited to present "Body Double," a duo show by two local artists, Melissa Huang & Hanna Newman.

"Body Double" is a two-person exhibition of works that explore and celebrate identity and the female form. This show plays with redefinition of societal norms while illustrating the psychological distress that results from expectations placed upon women. Both artists fragment, deconstruct, and finally rebuild the female body. The resulting works exist in a liminal space between the restrictions of a patriarchal society and the endless possibilities of a world unbound by gendered beauty norms.

"Body Double" invites the viewer to question the shared cultural expectations of female beauty standards. This exhibition explores the beautiful, the grotesque, and everything in between. The work is on view November 7th through the 21st.
