Please join author/editor Rachel Epp Buller and contributors to Reconciling Art and Mothering for a book launch reception and signing at the College Art Association conference in New York. The event will take place at the Ashgate booth (#430) in the exhibitors’ hall (Hilton conference site/1335 Avenue of the Americas) Friday, February 15, 4:30-6pm.
Reconciling Art and Mothering contributes a chorus of new voices to the growing body of scholarship on art and the maternal and, for the first time, focuses exclusively on maternal representations and experiences within visual art worldwide. This innovative collection joins the voices of practicing artists with those of art historians. Working against a hegemonic construction of motherhood, the contributors discuss diverse feminist mothering experiences around the globe, from maternal ambivalence to queer mothering to quests for self-fulfillment.
