MOTHER, MAY I? marks the return of the College Art Association's QUEER CAUCUS back to NYC for its annual conference. It is an exhibition with a fixed gaze on the inter-generational relationships in art and life. It's about permission and precedent: in making art, bending gender, and claiming the family we choose. Over twenty-five artists will participate, choosing "art" mothers and children, queering traditional notions of generation, sex and family.
Painter Blaine Anderson chooses multi-disciplined artist Ernesto Pujol to mother him. Shelly Marlow chooses her biological mother and quilter, Beatrice Marlow. Larry Schulte chooses his late aunt, Mae Morrison as the mother of his artist's life. Photographer and mother, Allen Frame, picks Jeanine Oleson as his art daughter.
