I am mum and... ...also forever a child.
m’Other – We are Artists, we became mothers… …and we are still artists
I am mum... ...but I am not YOUR mum.
I am mum and... ...I am on a journey of discovery, finding out what this means...
‐ Lottie Bolster
I am mum... ...but I don't always want to be one.
I am mum and... ...I dance in the dark.
I am mum and... ...and grateful to be one.
‐ Raja Ositi
I am mum and... ...so much more than that.
I am mum and... ...I am still a bit of me that used to be me.
m’Other Art at Charnwood Museum
This is a new and unique interventional exhibition to celebrate artist mothers. The project has been led by a local artist curator Khyati Koria-Green. In 2022 she received an Arts Council ‘Developing Your Creative Practice’ grant. She used this to further research the role of an independent curator with particular focus on how other Mother Artists continue their practice. We are all delighted that her exhibition has been supported by the Leicestershire County Council Museum Collections Team and is being hosted at Charnwood Museum.
