Labor, Motherhood & Art in 2020 Art Exhibition

Join us for the University Art Museums premier exhibition Motherhood & Art in 2020 (Labor), in conjunction with the Devasthali Hall grand opening, at New Mexico State University (NMSU) (1308 E University Ave, Las Cruces, NM 88003). Labors co-curators Marisa Sage and Laurel Nakadate aim to expand upon the diverse and complex conversations regarding motherhood in today’s desperate socio-political climate. Through video, painting, installation, sculpture, film and photographic works by a diverse group of artists, themes of empowerment, empathy, intimacy, selflessness, vulnerability, failure, anxiety, and choice are examined. Situated in the Borderplex region of Southern New Mexico, Labor confronts and challenges the historic, traditional and contemporary ways mothers and mothering have been represented in both art and popular culture. This exhibition strives to create a laboratory of inclusiveness and support that offers opportunities not only for internationally celebrated artists, but also for the regional community, through local programming and the exhibition of work by New Mexico based artists who speak to their own experiences relating to motherhood. The grand opening also includes a special performance by Jessica Jackson scheduled to begin at 7:15 pm. For Hutchins’s site-specific punk performance, dancers turn ceramic objects into wearable sculptures using their bodies to scoff at prescribed rituals, seeking to recreate the euphoria and pain children and mothering bring to one’s body and creative life.

OutsmART and Mama Create-Ups Workshops

OutsmART and Mama Create-Ups Workshops

We are thrilled to invite the full regional community to our first Mama Create-Up! Author Michelle Hackney and Illustrator Mia Ortiz-Gandara will present their children’s book Mama’s Leche and their mission to normalize breastfeeding by approaching the story of breastfeeding from the perspective of the child. Various members from the New Mexico Breastfeeding Task Force (NMBTF) will also share information on breastfeeding support groups and lactation professionals to our mothers in the Las Cruces community. 

*Lectures are free and open to all with or without children, this also includes babies.

Our first OutsmART children's workshop will utilize Labor artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins’s artworks SAP and Lascaux Reprise as inspiration. After visiting Hutchins’s works in the Contemporary Gallery, the children will create a clay sculpture using recycled materials as a framing device to represent their mothers. This workshop will explore various images and ideas of a mother as the focal point for their child, as the source of food, transportation, comfort, and understanding. The clay sculptures the students create will showcase how they view their mothers.

The Virgin Mary from Immaculate Conception to Our Lady of So

Please join the co-curators of the University Art Museum’s inaugural retablo exhibition as part of Labor: Art & Motherhood in 2020 for a virtual curators’ talk and exploration into the history of the UAM’s Mexican retablo collection on June 27th at 1 PM MST. Co-curators Professor Silvia Marinas-Feliner and NMSU graduate student Courtney Uldrich will discuss their methods in curating an exhibition in connection with motherhood, and exploring the importance of the Virgin Mary as one of the most exemplary models of motherhood. This exhibition is the first time the retablos have been displayed since the 2000 exhibition El Favor de los Santos: The Retablo Collection of New Mexico State University. With a recent donation of over 200 retablos by renowned retablo specialist and conservator Gloria Giffords, the UAM Permanent Art Collection now houses 2,000 nineteenth-century retablos, the largest such collection in the United States. Discussion will also include the history of the collection at the UAM, and a behind-the-scene look at the process of accessioning the recently acquired retablos into the collection.

MAMA Create-Ups: Carving Out Time For Your Art (Passions)

In this workshop authors of The Motherhood of Art, and creators of the Carve Out Time for Art program, Heather Kirtland and Marissa Huber will present on the importance for artist moms to set aside time for themselves, even in small increments. Kirtland and Huber will share tactical tips, encouragement, and personal struggles from themselves and the other artist mothers who shared in The Motherhood of Art. The impact of COVID has shifted many people’s lives, similar to the role of a new mother, and many artist mothers have now been tasked with new roles of teachers on top of their already heavy schedules. Finding a little time for art or creative hobbies can be a helpful outlet to help people process emotions and anxiety, and Kirtland and Huber will be sharing prompts and ideas to get people started or encouragement to continue to dedicate time for creative passions. This event is geared for anyone that is struggling to find time to create: parents, full-time professionals, artists that have taken a break and are looking to return to their practice, or had it figured out and are struggling again staying home during COVID. A Q&A session will be led at the end of the presentation, encouraging further discussion and interaction by the audience.
