Mothering Every Day

Mothering Every Day is a screening program co-curated by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and Irene Lusztig featuring 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 the 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.

Featuring work by Farheen Haq, Irene Lusztig, Jeny Amaya, Sasha Waters Freyer, and Kristy Guevara-Flanagan

Doors open at 7:30, program begins at 8:00
$8.oo at the door.
