“Lullabies and Lineage” portrays a range of familial relationships, from immediate blood relatives to communities we are adopted into or choose to be a part of.
Through the hidden operations of historical power dynamics that often exist without questioning and plague family relations, this show explores aspects of secret-keeping, loss, privilege, and moments of coming-of-age. By tracing the simultaneous development of one family split in two, “Lullabies and Lineage” will demonstrate pioneer feminist art-making techniques to further uncover past beliefs and reveal unknown truths.
There also exists a transitional aspect of the exhibition. This is an ongoing exploration of art-making within the realm of family dynamics. As the show persists, the pieces will change.
