Procreate Project is back with the 3rd edition of the Mother Art Prize 2020, the international open call for self-identifying women and non-binary visual artists with caring responsibilities.
Its aim is to promote and support artists who are mothers/parents as well as drive the attention of the wider public to a broad-spectrum of themes that would otherwise be overlooked and devalued.
The prize is aimed at artists working in one or more of the following media: painting, drawing, mixed-media, photography, digital art, sculpture, ceramics, installation, textile, sound and video and there are no theme restrictions.
The judging panel is composed by:
– Niamh Coghlan, Richard Saltoun Gallery Director
– Pauline Desouza, Director of the Diversity Art Forum
– Elvira Dyangani Ose, Director of The Showroom and Lecturer in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths University
– Eva Langret, Artistic Director Frieze London
– Claire Mander, Chair of Steering Committee of UK Friends of the National Museum of Women in the Arts and Director of theCoLAB
– Frances Morris, Director of Tate Modern
