Woman Made Gallery, Chicago:
"Mothers" seeks work by women in all media that addresses the culturally ubiquitous role of motherhood, historically under-represented in visual art. "Mothers" encourages multivalent understandings of this rich topic. Submissions might speak to personal experiences (as a mother or as related to a mother), social constructions of motherhood, the balance of home and work, the politicization of mothers, pregnancy, breastfeeding, childbirth, bodily transformation, miscarriage, loss, fertility/infertility, or other points of entry. Open to all forms of art that investigate the theme of "Mothers."
Juror: Rachel Epp Buller, Scholar and Artist
