Presented by Procreate Projects, The Mother Art Prize 2018 group show is the only international prize for self-identifying women and non-binary visual artists with caring responsibilities.
“These twenty artists who are also mothers prove that nothing is taboo, and a mother’s lived experience is as worthy a subject as any other for representation in the art world.” – Marcelle Joseph
The exhibition features twenty short-listed artists that work across a range of media. It’s curated by independent curator Marcelle Joseph, Zabludowicz Collection director Elizabeth Neilson, and Whitechapel Gallery curator Laura Smith.
The winner of the Mother Art Prize 2018, announced in December 2018, is British multi-disciplinary artist Candida Powell-Williams who creates a complex web of references as she brings together history and symbolism in her work, disorientating the viewer with the familiar and the unfamiliar.
