Curated by Shani K Parsons, Love’s Labours is a 50-minute video program on intersections of motherhood and artistic practice as they relate to issues of care. Including historical film excerpts, experimental film and video, mini-documentary interviews, and spoken word/music, Love’s Labours explores how a number of artists have wrestled with obligations, aspirations, and transformations that the physical, mental, emotional labours of motherhood bring to bear upon their inner worlds and identities as they negotiate the intensities and intimacies of maternal and artistic life in the face of systemic pressures and inequities.
Featuring works by Laura Mulvey & Peter Wollens, Mirha-Soleil Ross, Melissa Mollen Dupuis, Jules Arita Koostachin, Tracey Kershaw, Megan Wynne, Cara Mumford & Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Lu Heintz, Kelly O'Brien, and more.
Children are welcome to attend at their parents' discretion. Please be advised that the program contains nudity and adult themes.
