Show duration: Oct 4 - Nov 18, 2018

Inheritance weaves together the talents of April Felipe, Habiba El-Sayed and Natalia Arbelaez, whose work engages ideas of selfhood, be it constructed or obligatory. Each of theses artists use ceramics as a tool to question: who is hyper visible and who goes unseen? Whose identities are anchored and who is left with a sense of loss in search of belonging? And finally, how much power do we truly have in correcting the course of our inherited paths? Through personal narrative, they challenge us to reflect inward and explore how our complicated pasts affect our present understanding of the self.
