Being Human: A Social Practice Artwork and Workshop Residency with Artist Jill Miller. Being Human is an experimental, collaborative project between the Art Center, artist Jill Miller, and 10 San Francisco Bay Area artists who are also parents. Participants will use their parenting struggles and challenges as a catalyst for producing art. They will meet once each week for eight weeks, and each week's activities will be inspired by one of Erik Erikson's Eight Stages of Psychosocial Development. Followed consecutively, these stages trace the complete life span of a human being. Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Care and Feeding: The Art of Parenthood (September 15--December 30, 2018).
“Care and Feeding” is a group exhibition that considers the challenges and questions artists face when they become parents, featuring works by Tara Donovan, Lezley Saar and Lenka Clayton, among others. Parallel to “Care and Feeding,” “Being Human” is an ongoing experimental project and residency organized by Berkeley-based artist Jill Miller in collaboration 10 Bay Area-based artist-parents.
