In this conversation, participants of different ages are invited to discuss the impacts of motherhood on their artistic practices and consider the shifting historical moments shaping possibilities for artist-mothers in Canadian visual art institutions, art schools, and within culture at large. We will also be tracing the continuing history of individual and collective organizing that creates opportunities and support for artist mothers, along with the role that curators and archives play in generating and preserving these histories.
Our discussion will explore projects and artworks that specifically address the subject and experience of maternity, understood through an inclusive lens.
