A Tacit Inheritance: Elizabeth M. Claffey & Rania Matar

“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
