Documentation from a fascinating talk by Winsom McCaughey and Hillary Mc Phee at TCB this Saturday November 23rd — revealing the lives and challenges for women and their requirements for shared child care in the early 70's — great to hear from representative mothers of my childhood, women creating extensive opportunities for future parents. Here some images of their talk with my material, text and art object intervention: invited by Harriet Morgan, Katherine Hattam and Fayen d'Evie.

Invitiation: Saturday 22/11 @ 2pm: A conversation on 'Parenting in the Art World'. This is an informal conversation about the early days of childcare, led by publisher Hillary McPhee and early feminist acitvist Winsom McCaughey. This will also extend to current-day parenting within the artworld.


Uneducated reviewed in The Age

Added on by Kym Maxwell.

It was wonderful  to arrive at the gallery yesterday and a parent tell me, Uneducated received another review in The Age, by Dan Rule!! I was soo chuffed, we were soo lucky. Especially since the very considered Dylan Rainforth had written about the children's 'Curation Project'; but Dan's review was different, it focused on the artists work, in particular focusing on the miminal selection within the show. It made a great contrast between the reviews.

Wow! That with Maura Edmond's interview there has been interest in the works within the show, the premise, as well as the artists' talks, the philospohy lecture and the children's curation. Wow, its been a bumper month of brilliance!!
