Highline Heritage Museum
Now through 8/2021
Like Mother features the work of 25 artists telling their stories. It was curated by Kelly Lyles, who shares this reflection on the exhibit:
“Like Mother was learning that my own need to make work after my mother’s death is a shared one. Many friends were losing their moms, too, and wanted to “work out” emotions around their passing. These are artists whom I admire with stories to tell. Some of their mothers were pilots, actresses, dancers, scientists, world-travelers, etc, in addition to being home-makers.
“This exhibit is an invitation to reflect on your own parental heritage, your stories, struggles, and triumphs. This is a reminder to engage with all people: our culture is so NOW focused, the exhibition takes time to delve into the past and help us recontextualize the present. I need to take this lesson to heart myself, fearing the ageism of the art world in my 60’s…”
