MOTHERING EVERY DAY

SATURDAY, MARCH 31 at 7 PM

Doors 6:30; $5 admission.

Mothering Every Day is a program of film and video work about embodying / performing motherhood, domestic labor, and the quotidian. The idea for this program was generated by the artists themselves who were frustrated about the challenges of getting work about maternity  screened in the film and art world. From poetic gesture to direct address to everyday labor of the domestic space, the works themselves borrow from documentary, experimental and installation traditions. This program seeks to reframe motherhood as a valuable site of intellectual exploration and artistic production and expand on a decades-long dialogue considering maternity as an essential feminist concern.

FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE. CO-PRESENTED BY THE WOMEN’S CENTER FOR CREATIVE WORK!

Variations on his signature “swampdonkey” tag — the skull of some imaginary tusked creature — can be found in almost every imaginable setting across America: dilapidated skyscrapers in Oakland, Calif.; train trestles in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; gallery walls in Atlanta or Brooklyn.
