A Tacit Inheritance: Elizabeth M. Claffey & Rania Matar
November 4, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - November 20, 2020 @ 5:00 pmFree
“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.
“A Tacit Inheritance,” supported in part by the Aurora PhotoCenter, will remain on view for in-person visits in the Marsh Gallery until Nov. 20 and available online as a virtual 360-degree tour through Jan. 10. The Herron Galleries will be closed to the public during IUPUI’s online instruction period from Nov. 21 to Feb. 8.
A virtual reception with the exhibiting artists will take place on Zoom from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Nov. 12. To participate, register in advance online or watch the livestream at facebook.com/HerronGalleries.
Herron’s exhibitions in Eskenazi Hall, 735 W. New York St., are free of charge and open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with the exception of the online instruction period.
