Elizabeth M. Claffey & Rania Matar
A Tacit Inheritance: Elizabeth M. Claffey & Rania Matar
Nov. 4, 2020 – Jan. 10, 2021
A Tacit Inheritance features two distinct bodies of work by Elizabeth M. Claffey and Rania Matar, each exploring the themes of identity and memory through broader experiences of women across generations and cultures. Claffey’s "Matrilinear" offers a poetic window to layers of memory, through object portraits that represent a common thread of past, present, and future. In Matar's meticulously crafted portrait series "Unspoken Conversations," she explores womanhood at two seminal stages of life, adolescence and middle age.
This exhibition is supported, in part, by Aurora PhotoCenter.

Nov. 4, 2020 – March 13, 2021
