Inherit: A Visual Exploration of Land, Connection, and Legacy

January 18, 2024-August 3, 2024

This exhibition explores the connections between lineage, community, and the environment. Whether actively or passively, we each inherit bloodlines, culture, and land. The passage of time reveals the impact of this inheritance. We see it in our bodies, the ways we interact with nature, and what we choose to pass on to future generations.

In 2019, a group of multi-disciplinary artists met in Iceland for a collaborative and creative experience. During this gathering, the artists explored the idea of inheritance in conversation, music, and art-making. The artworks in this exhibition are the result of the artists’ interactions and collaborations during that experience.
