Curatorial Statement

Division of Labor addresses the impact of parenthood on an artist's creative practice and career. Featuring a select group of emergent to internationally recognized contemporary artists working across media, a diversity of perspectives and approaches are represented. Division of Labor examines direct links between the aesthetics, materiality and meaning of an artist’s work in relation to parenthood while also revealing unexpected moments at the intersection of art-making and family life.

Inventive modes of display, all-ages events and advocacy-based auxiliary programming combine the creative approaches to art-making-while-parenting.
