New York City, New York. Secretary Press is proud to announce the launch of How We Do Both: Art and Motherhood.
How We Do Both: Art and Motherhood is a diverse collection of honest responses from contemporary artists who have walked—and are still walking—the tenuous tight rope of motherhood and making art (not necessarily in that order).
Throughout history many artists have uniquely embraced the concurrent roles of motherhood and maker. This is a collection of twelve artists responding to these three questions:
1. How do you logistically balance art making and
2. Does your artmaking require a “room of one’s own”?
3. Did having children enhance your creativity?
Some responded directly to the questions while others used the questions as an inspiration for an essay. This collection provides a voice, which is at times interpolated through collective experience but all the while remains unique through the power of individual choice.
Books will soon be available for sale at The International Center of Photography Museum Bookstore and online at secretarypress.com.
