"Artist/Mother: The Maternal Experience as a Creative Catalyst"

Toni Pepe, 2017 SPE Future Focus Project Support Grant Winner

Saturday, March 03 - 2:00PM to 2:45PM
Grand Ballroom Salon G

Toni Pepe is a mother, educator, and working artist concerned with the social standards for the maternal experience and how those expectations were formed. Since 2012, Pepe has been working on a body of images that addresses the myths, fantasies, and anxieties of motherhood. It is a project that Pepe is intimately involved with, as the subjects performing for the camera are herself and her children. This presentation explores the ways in which motherhood has informed her art practice and the themes found within her work.
