MAMA NEEDS A RAISE! Lunch and Learn

Lunch and Learn: 


Toward a “Utopian” Care Economy

Bring your lunch - and your baby if you like - and join curator, artist and PSP member Katherine Gressel and artist Betty Yu for a tour of the MAMA NEEDS A RAISE! exhibition at the Old Stone House & Washington. We'll take some time to talk about the exhibit, the creative process, and how we find time to care for ourselves and others.  It would be great to hear from you about  things that already work for you in terms of family life, brainstorm about things we can work toward, and explore how we can use groups like Park Slope Parents as a resource and build community. We'd love for you to meet your neighbors, spend time with friends, and enjoy this interesting and engaging exhibit.

Open to all PSP members.

Non-walking children welcome; we want to make sure mamas have bandwidth to be present for the sharing. 

About the Exhibition: 

This group exhibition, in partnership with the Mother Creatrix Collective (MCC)  addresses such questions as: What do artists/caregivers most need and want? What would comprise a “Utopian” society that better recognizes and supports both caregiving and art-making? What role can artists play? The exhibition includes the six members of MCC who were invited to respond to these prompts, plus ten additional artists whose work addresses these themes from diverse perspectives. Mama Needs a Raise! builds on both MCC’s previous shows about the unique challenges (and strengths) of artist mothers, and OSH’s ongoing Brooklyn Utopias series that invites artists to envision ideal communities. In a country with few supports for families (or, increasingly, for family-building) and even fewer for artists with families, the title Mama Needs a Raise! suggests not only the need to adequately compensate caregivers and artists alike, but the need to raise their perceived value, visibility and collective voice.
