While the idealized version of "mother" has long been the subject of artwork, artists' parents have taken control of their image offering diverse representations of caregiving. Pioneering artists Mary Kelly, Catherine Opie, and Renee Cox have long challenged art historical norms but it is at this moment that caregiving has become a more widely accepted topic of art in popular culture. Maternal art studies, feminist mothering, and international networks of artist parents are now widely accessed and provide a strengthened framework of artistic inquiry into care. As a global pandemic revealed care as essential work, a widened diversity of voices in power positions in museums, and media outlets have noticed. Each class will begin with a lecture and conversation focusing on artist/parent identity in art history and contemporary practices followed by workshopping on new and existing student projects. Students are class are encouraged to create while enjoying space for art production, inquiry, constructive criticism, and conversation.
