Mother Art, a collective of eight women artists dedicated to creating social-political art, was most active during the 1970′s and 1980′s. They personalized issues by using women’s stories. All the topics they dealt with are still relevant today.
In 2012 Mother Art created a video of their history. This 40-minute documentary tells of the odyssey of the collective from youth through middle age as they created art installations in galleries and public spaces, were vilified by conservative politicians and perservered to speak truth to power.
In 2000, Mother Art had a retrospective, and since that time, have been included in a number of important exhibitions focused on women and women’s art collectives. Mother Art published a book and produced a video about their collective art practice.
