Exhibition: “Complicated Labors”

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 to Saturday, March 15, 2014
Sesnon Arts Gallery, Porter College (UCSC)
Presented by: 
Arts Division
Film and Digital Media
Sesnon Gallery (note: Use Sesnon Art Gallery instead)

An exhibition featuring historical and contemporary work at the intersection of feminism and maternity which asks renewed questions about 21st-century feminist art and the maternal.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a one-day symposium* and a screening series organized by Irene Lusztig and Natalie Loveless. Held in the gallery and set against the work in the exhibition, the symposium and screening series will create a space for critical interdisciplinary dialogue around issues of maternity, feminism, art-making, and writing, explicitly staging a "conversation" that puts the 1970s in conversation with the current moment.

Curated by Irene Lusztig
Featuring: Lenka Clayton, Mary
Kelly, Natalie Loveless, Irene Lusztig, Jill Miller, Mother Art Collective, Alejandra Herrera Silva, and Mierle Laderman Ukeles.
