Date of Publication



Members of An Artist Residency in Motherhood were invited to simultaneously record the events of the July 15th, 2019, in as much or as little detail as they chose. The book shares accounts of the same single day from 81 people in 19 countries—all artists and mothers to children from six weeks to 33 years old. An Artist Residency in Motherhood was born out of a feeling of invisibility that I felt as a parent, and that I heard others experienced too. Though parenthood is an ongoing dance of tasks and experiences and near-constant engagement, I'd often find myself at the end of the day thinking I had done nothing all day. Mothers' Days is a 388 page document of what happens when nothing happens.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Labor: Motherhood & Art in 2020, University Art Museum, New Mexico State University.
