About mothermother Artist Collective
mothermother is an artist-run initiative with an inclusive kaupapa that offers support and visibility to over 30 artists with a strong focus on supporting local artists, as well as celebrating new connections outside Tāmaki.
mothermother promotes underrepresented artists and challenges hierarchical curatorial methods by elevating the unity of a healthy network.
mothermother artists are not necessarily biological mothers, but rather embody a kaupapa of manaakitanga, caretaking, and support for those who identify with the struggle of being fundamentally overlooked and under-valued as artists in a society that favours a male perspective.
We are ‘mOther’, ‘muth’: other, emergent, re-emergent, transitioning.
We acknowledge our muthas before us and aim to reveal the interconnected networks that support and sustain us, the bodily connections we hold to the land, our societies, each other and our futures.
