Is motherhood the last taboo left in contemporary art? The documentary “Artist and Mother” features four rising artists who dare to make their own experience of motherhood a part of their work: Rebecca Campbell, Andrea Chung, Tanya Aguiñiga, and Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle. Not only do they juggle career and family like so many today, but they’ve also found inspiring ways to use the materials or images of motherhood in their art. Curators Naima Keith and Helen Molesworth, journalist Jori Finkel and professors Micol Hebron and Alexandra Moctezuma weigh in on the larger art-market dynamics and gender biases at stake, flipping the script that devalues women’s creativity.
Followed by a Q & A with Jori Finkel and Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle.
