Re:balance, located in the Main Gallery and Gallery 2, features the work of Ching Ching Cheng, Juliana Rico, and Jane Szabo. This exhibition offers a look at the shifting dynamics of family relationships undergoing change. The three artists explore how established, seemingly permanent roles within families are adjusted as a result of birth, growth, aging, and loss. Parenthood becomes part of artistic practice; a shift in responsibility reveals newfound personal strength; the energy at the center of a family quietly fades. These narratives are explored through photography, video, and installation, reflecting the artists’ search of new equilibrium within their family structures.
