Pandemic Parenting with Amy Swartz & The Drawing Board, by Rachael Grad

The Drawing Board is a collective – We are pleased to feature their work as part of our Pandemic Parenting exhibit online at MoM. The Drawing Board found themselves effected by the political issues, intense atmosphere, power structure, and inequity in University meetings. Afterward, they doodled intensely as a creative and healthy way to safely process. They used the fodder and energy to make work examining the tensions among creative people within a bureaucracy that guides teachers.

Pandemic Parenting Interview with Batnadiv Hakarmi, by Rachael Grad

I was teaching before the pandemic in 3 different places. During the pandemic, it was a real struggle to teach on zoom with kids at home. I didn’t go back to teaching until after lockdown was over because it was too difficult to get childcare. I used to teach art at Brandeis University in the summer and I really miss it. I found there isn’t that much flexibility in teaching so between lockdowns and quarantines, I transitioned to giving workshops and doing freelance editing. The work does take away from my art practice – it’s a constant juggle to make time and space. From the online exhibit: Pandemic Parenting, organized by Rachael Grad for the Museum of Motherhood.
