mothermother is a permanent exhibition platform where female programming is at its heart and kaupapa.

Situated at LOT23 the exhibition evolves by artists inviting artists. The project fosters connections in our creative communities by providing space for the exhibiting artists to make contact with artists they admire, or who they wish to thank or reach out to, or simply acknowledge, to initiate an exchange of space.

Each exhibition runs for 4-6 weeks. The taonga gifted to the project is the artists invitation to the next artist. This generational process is inspired by story telling and knowledge sharing in the spirit of our mothers before us.

The exhibition aims to activate curatorial practice, challenging normative modes of gallery representation.
