HOLDING DUALITY STILL
Works by Lana Gordon & Jasmine Chen
About the Exhibition
On view May 18-September 18, 2021
Featuring the work of Lana Gordon and Jasmine Chen, Holding Duality Still uses the lens of contemporary art to examine often conflicting identities and desires. Both Gordon and Chen embody dualities, Gordon as an artist and former lawyer, Chen as an artist who grew up in both China and America, with a PhD in economics, and both as women who are fiercely independent and yet reliant on their families and communities. Together, their work asks: must I choose, or can I find a teetering equilibrium, holding all those facets together as one through art?
