On Saturday, December 12 from 6-8pm, A.I.R. Gallery will hold a screening, open to the public, of additional video works that augment the selections that comprise the month-long Mother/mother-* exhibition. The films screened on December 12th are a critical component of Mother/mother-*.
The films are:
Ilana Rein’s Julie, a documentary shot over the course of seven years and edited in 2008
Marie-Francoise Theodore’s Rebel in the Soul, a stirring narrative that traces the connection between a contemporary African-American artist and a Georgia sharecropper’s wife lynched in 1915
Emilie Upzak’s Weaning Gideon, documenting the physical changes associated with weaning
Ingrid Berthon-Moine’s Midriff, a short film comprised entirely of a close-in shot of a woman twanging her tampon string to music.
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.
