the wild (survival) guide of an artist-parent

Posted by: Laura Petrovich-Cheney

Organized by A.I.R. Fellow/Bulgarian artist Daniela Kostova

On Friday, April 8, 2016 A.I.R. in Brooklyn, NY – the first women’s cooperative gallery in the United States, founded in 1972 – hosted “the wild (survival) guide of an artist-parent” a pluralistic discussion about art, play, parenting, fear, and adventure. Artists, curators, entrepreneurs and educators were invited to discuss personal and collective strategies of integrating families and children in the process of art making, performing and living as artist-parents in the city.  Together, they considered the advantages and limitations of this presumably unlikely condition as well as live/work models, co-working and co-living.
