Mother/mother-* is a group exhibition curated by artist and 2008-2009 A.I.R. Gallery Fellow Jennifer Wroblewski. The exhibition is of works made by artists within the years immediately following a pregnancy or the birth of a child. The artists live and work in the U.S., Canada, Scotland, England, and Spain. For the purpose of the exhibition, the title Mother/mother-* also refers to father artists. "Mother" is the term that elicits the great frisson when uttered within the larger art culture.

This event is free and open to the public!
