OFF-SPRING: New Generations, 21c Museum hotel, durham, north carolina

March 24, 2016 – September 4, 2016

Rituals—religious and cultural, institutional and domestic—provide the thematic infrastructure for OFF-SPRING: New Generations.

In the family home, at the wedding altar, or in the classroom, within the fantasy of childhood play or the familiarity of grown-up habit, these new, old narratives generate a spectrum of meditations on the contemporary construction of self and society.
