EMILIA-AMALIA invites Amy Wong

May 23, 7–9pm

Mercer Union, a centre for contemporary art
1286 Bloor St W


Hours
Tue–Sat 11am–6pm

Responding to Beatrice Gibson: Plural Dreams of Social Life through a series of four public programs, EMILIA-AMALIA invite artists and practitioners to consider Gibson’s propositions for collective authorship, feminist histories, and the maternal as an essential point of collision between the self and the external world.

Artist Amy Wong hosts a performative lecture focusing on mother-work as interwoven with social, communal and activist work. Wong explores a range of inspirations and traditions: the popularity of mid-19th Century quilting bees, Cantonese traditions of postpartum nourishment and healing, and the artist’s own use of and thinking around breastmilk production as linked to cultural production.

Registration for the event opens May 7, and is limited to 20 persons. For registration and childcare accommodations during these events please inquire in advance: office@mercerunion.org.
