New Maternalism Redux Exhibition

FAB Gallery at University of Alberta, Canada

I'll be showing my new work, 24 Hour Family Portraits. I’m also exhibiting ephemera from the social practices project, The Milk Truck, as well as my video series, Xtreme Mothering! where I insert myself into the footage of extreme athletes using GoPro cameras. The exhibition runs from May 12 - June 4, 2016 and was curated by Natalie Loveless.

Women of Wikipedia (WOW!) Editing Group

High School and College aged women in the Bay Area

In 2015 and 2016, I received an Individual Engagement Grant from the Wikimedia Foundation and to create the socially-engaged project, Women of Wikipedia (WOW!) Editing Group that empowers high school-aged women to close the gender gap by researching and editing Wikipedia articles. (Only 10% of active editors on Wikipedia are women. Let's change that.)

Panel Discussion

College Art Association, February 2014
TFAP Panel for “The M Word”

Title: Mothers / Artists / Children


Description: What are the implications when an artist brings her children into her work? Where is the line between collaboration and exploitation? When can children give consent, or even be considered artists in their own right? This panel addresses twentieth-century and contemporary incarnations of the often-controversial mother / artist / child triangle.

Exhibition

New Maternalisms II (between affect and discourse)

Jill will be exhibiting work in the New Maternalisms II (between affect and discourse) exhibition at UC Santa Cruz in February-March 2014.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a one-day symposium and a screening series. Held in the gallery, set against the work in the exhibition, the symposium and screening series will create a space for critical interdisciplinary dialogue around issues of maternity, feminism, art-making, and writing, explicitly staging a "conversation" that puts the 70s in conversation with the current moment.
