Sactum Exhibition Opening Reception

September 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Sanctum brings together a collection of international artists to present work in conversation around the concept of genetic memory. Long fascinated with the idea that we inherit not only DNA but fear, habits, triumph, trauma and love—among other things from our ancestors—curator Alyssa Taylor Wendt has gathered these artists to explore how this affects our collective cultural consciousness. Hailing from diverse practices and working in video, installation, photography, painting and sculpture, this group of work includes an excerpt from Wendt’s latest film The Memory Inheritance, which she filmed this past summer in Detroit.


This exhibition will be on display from September 6 – October 5.
