Film Screening: Artist and Mother
June 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm |
Is motherhood the last taboo left in contemporary art? The documentary Artist and Mother features four rising artists who dare to make their own experience of motherhood a part of their work: Rebecca Campbell, Andrea Chung, Tanya Aguiñiga, and Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle. Not only do they juggle career and family like so many today, but they’ve also found inspiring ways to use the materials or images of motherhood in their art. Curators and scholars weigh in on the larger art-market dynamics and gender biases at stake, flipping the script that devalues women’s creativity.
After the film, there will be a community panel discussion with local artists Mona Cliff, Connie Fiorella Fitzpatrick, Molly Frances Murphy and Heidi Gluck about how they balance motherhood with their artistic endeavors.
This screening is FREE and made possible from KCET as part of the Making it Work exhibition currently on display at the Lawrence Arts Center. Advance registration is not required.
Artist and Mother will be preceded by the short film I Hope You Know made through the Zinn Writing Project!
