This article and the research practice, ‘Mother as Curator’, speaks directly to the mother developing art with her family, and addresses the ethical implications which arise from this kind of performance making. The author discusses two pieces of work she has developed with her children, Oliver’s World (2014) and Isabel’s Shoes (2017). These performance works and encounters highlight and encourage performance making from different angles, acknowledging the ways in which art making as part of family life shifts perspectives on, and understandings of, what we mean by art practice and the ways it might be experienced.
