Description

OPENING EVENT AND SPECIAL PROGRAMMING:
Friday, June 4 | 5 – 8 PM during First Friday

Our family history goes beyond the names and dates we find in our family tree. It’s about what makes us who we are, and the people with whom we can form deep connections. Our history gives us a sense of identity, enables cultural connections, and promotes tradition. It’s about the resilience of people who have lived and breathed and suffered and triumphed before us. Our family history informs our medical and mental health. It inspires compassion, greater understanding, and empathy for others. Family history asks us to question our position within society. It affects our progress and growth, and explores how we alter our identity to conform and assimilate within cultural constructs. Family history asks us to decide what is family?

The selection of these five artists and their work provides a backdrop for reflection and consideration on who we are as individuals in relation to our ancestors and to the people we call family. Through the work of Chad Cortez Everett, Gene Holt, Alexander Newman, Chau Nguyen, and Yapci Ramos, this exhibition attempts to better understand the personal struggles to identify, sort out, and accept or deny those characteristics, and qualities we as individuals inherit.
