In the first edition of HOW WE DO BOTH (2012), we asked a group of established artists to respond to three questions: How do you logistically balance art making and motherhood? Does your art making require a "room of one's own"? Did having children enhance your creativity? Some responded directly to these questions while others used the questions as an inspiration for an essay. Our aim with this second edition is not only to print more copies but to show that our community of artists is continually growing. Our hope with this second collection is to diversify further the voice of the mother artist, which at times is interpolated through a collective experience but still remains unique through the power of individual choice.
Writing as Practice
Writing as Practice is a collection of edited transcripts and afterthoughts from a symposium of the same name on writing and imagery. The event brought together writers, visual artists and curators who investigate the role of the written word in their respective artistic practices. The conversations were about the decentering of linguistics within artistic practices focusing on narrative writing and image making as a convergence and/or partnership.
MOLD is one of three in a series where three writers and three artists are asked to respond to one word.
