A Tacit Inheritance: Elizabeth M. Claffey & Rania Matar
November 4, 2020 – January 10, 2021
A Tacit Inheritance featured 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.
