Gallery Talk: Mothers Expressing: Sharing the Work, October 24 & 27

Mothers Expressing: A conversation over tea
Saturday, October 24th, 2009 | 4:00 - 6:00 pm

AXIOM Gallery for New and Experimental Media
141 Green Street (in the Green Street T station)
Boston, MA 02130 

As part of the Mothers Expressing exhibition, Nita Sturiale and Amber Davis Tourlentes have invited two experts, Ana Villalobos, Brandeis sociologist, and Jenny Weaver, lactation consultant, to bring together knowledge around the work and physiology of caretaking. Come ask questions, propose ideas, and share anecdotes about care-taking in our current economic culture. How can we shape a new economic model that is informed by gift economy ideals?

Ana Villalobos received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and is currently a visiting research associate at Brandeis University. Ana's research and teaching focus on motherhood, and attempt to bring to light the often hidden connections between large-scale social forces and personal experience.

Jenny Weaver has been an OB/GYN RN for more than 20 years. She has worked at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. She is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.

Please RSVP

Nita and Amber will also give an Artists Talk on their ongoing collaboration and work in the current exhibition on Tuesday, October 27th at 7 pm.
