Event description
Join artist Mira Burack and Marisa Sage for lunch and discussion about art practice and motherhood.

About this Event

In conjunction with Mira Burack’s exhibition Sleeping between the Sun and the Moon at 516 ARTS (on view through August 31), where artworks share the coexistence of family and art, we invite you to come, have lunch, and share stories of how your art practice and motherhood impact each other. In addition to celebrating this powerful collaboration, we hope to continue to demystify any voices that say that the two can not thrive simultaneously. Like any other profession, women delicately balance raising their children while maintaining a serious art practice in a lot of creative ways. Over a meal, we’ll share our magic and discuss critical writing around the topic. If you have any writings on art and motherhood that have influenced your practice, please feel free to bring the titles or texts with you. Together, we’ll discuss creative practice and mother practice, feminism, post-feminism, and methods of sustaining your work while caring for yourself and those you love.

ABOUT MIRA BURACK:

Burack refers to her artist/mother practice as an ‘integrative’ studio practice. Her creative practice ebbs and flows with her family life, the seasons, and is physically roving through different rooms in her home, the studio she shares with her partner, and on her land at any given time. She believes it really does take a community to live well and completely. Her practice and the raising of her children are supported by the family compound that surrounds her. Since she became a mother, her art has been flourishing at a beautifully slow, manageable pace. As it happened, when it came time to create a family, it was also time to actualize some significant artistic projects.
