Special Event

Mother Artist Film Screening

Artists and co-creators of BIG Kids Magazine Jo Pollitt and Lilly Blue developed The Mother Artist Network (MAN) in 2011 as a platform to provoke dialogue about creative practice and motherhood.

This event will be the second in an ongoing series of programs which aim to explore the challenge and rich terrain of navigating motherhood with an ongoing professional art practice.

Excerpts from two films will be shown followed by a conversation in response to the screenings facilitated by artist Lilly Blue.

The Films:

Lost In Living by Mary Trunk takes us behind the domestic curtain of motherhood where the creative impulse can flourish or languish. Filmed over 7 years, Lost in Living, confronts the contradictions inherent in personal ambition and self sacrifice, female friendship and mental isolation, big projects and dirty dishes.

Who Does She Think She Is by Pamela T. Boll explores intersections between mothering and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art. The film invites us to consider both ancient legacies of women worshiped as cultural muses and more recent times where most people can’t even name a handful of female artists.
