January 19, 2019 - March 3, 2019

Reception: Friday, February 8, 2018 | 7-10 pm

Target Gallery presents RITUALISMS, a group exhibition that explores how rituals are an intrinsic part of the human experience. Whether it be through personal rituals, such as daily habits or quirks, or through a larger cultural context, such as religious or cultural ceremonies, the work in this exhibition will address the universality of rituals and how they foster connection or isolation.
