The kids are all right brings the bedrock theme of family into the twenty-first century—an age when love defines the family unit more than tradition, convention, the law, or even blood. This exhibition will feature photography and time-based media created in the last ten years by 38 established and emerging artists who sensitively reveal, with radical openness, the current notion of family.
The exhibition demonstrates today’s reality: Family is a complicated entanglement of people. Uninhibited by the failed promise of a conventional family, the artists reject irony and judgment to show us families—natural or found—in whatever forms they take. The artists take no critical position but, rather, affirm with poignancy and humor the ever-shifiting notion of the contemporary family.
