Mother, May I? : New Works By Grrrl Art Collective says

Preview Inquiries:

Feminists have denied for decades the patriarchal idealization of motherhood placing the mother’s sole existence inside the home; but mothers were once outcasts to the feminist movement, being culturally coded as passive and fragile. Though the dichotomy between feminism and motherhood is subsiding, mothers are still not absolved of the guilt generated from their desire to pursue their own dreams. Generations of women before us tried tirelessly to live up to the myth of the fully devoted and all-sacrificing mother. As a result, we continue to expect ourselves to do the same. But we are no longer seen as just mothers. We have reached a point where mothers are now recognized among the most determined and successful people we encounter in our lives. We are competitive, driven, and strong. But we are still mothers. We are still compassionate nurturers who wish to raise thriving happy children. We do it all and we recognize all that our mothers did for us. Mother, May I? presents ten artists’ meditations on the struggle between fulfilling historical ideologies of female domesticity and choosing to pursue their own path.

About GRRRL Art Collective

GRRRL Art Collective was founded in 2016 with the goal of showcasing artists whose original technique and content expresses a point of view that differs from the masses. Within this collective is a wide range of visual artists who regularly depict the female form and/or the world from a female perspective. While retaining their individual artistic voices they collectively aim to represent the female as more than a mere decorative pretty face.
