This week I am choosing to blog about Gabriel Garcia’s gallery. His work filled an entire room with sterotypical messages about the idea of masculinity. Messages that at some point we have all heard at some point in our lives. He said the reason for these messages was to make sort of a subconcious impact. The main message is in today’s sociey there is a shameful sense of masculinity. What we consider the bigger, more aggresive man is regarged as manly, his gallery was an aim to show these faults in our society. I related to his ideas in the sense I have never been someone you would consider mascline in our society, I have heard the same lines directed at me as it was in the show. This being said it was refreshing to see someone have a creastive show on a definite problem in our society.
Here’s a pic of some of his work
