For many of us, being sheltered in place has brought about an interest in viewing our private spaces and intimate relationships. Family Matters is an online exhibition, curated by Bonny Nahmias, acting as an invitation to think about these times as nesting times—as times to attend to family (biological or chosen), to take care of our immediate surroundings, and to create and commune despite geographical distance. There is time to learn, improve, and nurture our relationships; be whimsical with our kids at home, write letters to loved ones, be more attentive to grandparents, as well as face new and pre-existing conflict and hardship. “Matter” is both a concern of great importance, as well as the physical substance which occupies one’s space. What is your family matter?

The works featured in Family Matters share stories of family relation, remembrances of hardship and turns toward creative collaboration—devised in and out of this current moment of global quarantine.

Family Matters will be on view online in our virtual gallery:
Root Division Talk from December 7, 2020, to January 4, 2021.
