From Mother Nature to Mother Superior, from the Mother of Invention to Motherf*@%!#, there are many forms of Mother. This exhibit aims to consider them all. Fierce to funny. Domestic to mythic.

What is the meaning of Mother, and what house does she inhabit? What sway does a mother’s voice, presence, love—or lack of these things—have? Must one bear a child, or be a woman, to be a
