M/othering Reception and Artist Talk
January 14, 2017
Gallery 263 was honored to host a reception celebrating M/othering, our first Curatorial Proposal Series exhibition of the new year. Featuring artists Fletcher Boote, Maya Pindyck, Tereza Swanda, and Angela Rose Voulgarelis, the work included draws on their experiences of motherhood and childhood in relation to the often-complicated dynamics of family relationships, cultural identity, and positions of privilege. They explore these themes through a range of media, driven by questions about inheritance and systems; What continuity is there, if any, between generations? What gets handed down from mother to child? What gets passed from nation to education, or from education to family structure? What images and stereotypes of mothering tend to spread and reproduce?
Guests to the event enjoyed time to mingle (pictures coming soon!) and stayed for an engaging Artist Talk with Maya Pindyck and Tereza Swanda. Pindyck and Swanda answered visitor questions, and spoke about the inspiration behind their work and the challenges of balancing motherhood and an artistic career.
