May 14th 2017

This Mother’s Day, Amina Ross presents Mothering, a program of performances queering the construction of mothering as an action rather than an assigned and gendered role. Select artists are invited to respond to prompts with ephemeral material and movement to deconstruct the humanity and symbolic significance of the “mother”. This event is largely inspired by the anthology Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines edited by Alexis Pauline Gumbs, China Martens and Mai’a Williams. Featured artists include A.J McClenon, Joelle Mercedes, Allen Moore, Zakkiyyah Najeebah, Zach Nicol, Jade Perry, and Aaron White.

Mothering Mother’s Day Movements is presented by Compound Yellow in partnership with Chicago Artists’ Coalition and Terrain Exhibitions as a program of Terrain-HATCH Public Art Curatorial Residency and I Am Conscious, I Am Love exhibition curated by Sadie Woods. Space is limited, please RSVP on Facebook or via email to
