Andrea Chung on KCET Artbound 3.28.18

Artist and Mother

Season 9, Episode 7

This episode profiles four California artists who make motherhood a part of their art: Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Andrea Chung, Rebecca Campbell and Tanya Aguiñiga. There's a persisting assumption in contemporary art circles that you can't be a good artist and good mother both. But these artists are working to shatter this cliché, juggling demands of career and family and finding inspiring ways to explore the maternal in their art.

by Marissa Gluck

THE GOOD NEWS:
Artists can earn more money without having to sacrifice their vision to the art market’s trends.
