Artist as Mother as Artist


United Kingdom

Curatorial Statement

Artist as Mother as Artist is a co-curated gallery exhibition by Sam Rose and Tracey Kershaw, featuring artworks across the disciplines of video, dance on film, photography, sculpture, drawing, print, and live art and performance documents. Showcasing fourteen local and national artists whose practice is based upon the inseparable relationship between being an artist and mother, all works featured have all been nourished, enabled, influenced and created as a consequence of the artist’s maternal experiences.

Additionally, there will be a series of professional development opportunities and public participatory events that will consider how parenthood can enhance creative thinking. These events will encourage debate and conversation, making the maternal a critical component of artistic discourse.

Artist as Mother as Artist aims to inspire child and parent collaboration and encourage artistic practice amongst mothers, who may feel a conflict between their artistic engagement and their day-to-day caring activities.

Artist as Mother as Artist project is supported by Arts Council England, ncn Lace Market Gallery, My Family Care, Lumen PR, Jazz Hairdressing and Creative Quarter Nottingham.
