"In Truth Before Flowers," Jennifer Ling Datchuk disentangles histories and traumas through objects culturally associated with womanhood. Inspired by the history of teacups and dinnerware, she employs porcelain to speak in dualities, especially of fragility, resilience, and ultimately the struggle between diversity and the flawless white body. Materials like porcelain and hair have crisscrossed the world and reflect migrations of identity. Datchuk deconstructs established hierarchies of materials and champions the handmade.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 25.
