Anthropology of Motherhood (AoM) is seeking works of art and design focused on Deaf and Disability culture and its synchronicity with the culture of care and maternal feminism. We are calling on artists and artist-caregivers of persons who identify as d/Deaf, d/Disabled, Blind, Crip, Neurodivergent to submit works in all media and innovative use of materials. This exhibition will be on view during the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival runs June 2-11, 2023. This will be a functional, hybrid exhibition that is innovatively designed as both an art space, an interactive amenity, and place of respite for families with young children. The 2023 edition of AoM will be presented in collaboration with the Dyer Arts Center at the National Technical Institute of the Deaf. This exhibition will travel to Dyer Arts Center in Rochester, NY and will be on view from August 28 – Dec. 8, 2023.
Call for Public Art Installation that Addresses a Culture of Care
AoM is seeking proposals for a 10-day temporary public art installation to be held in the Cultural District’s Backyard, a brand-new summer-long destination that showcases local musicians, artists, and performers in a laid-back family-friendly environment. The total budget is $10,000, inclusive of artist fees, fabrication, and installation for a pubic art piece that addresses a culture of care.
