The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) presents the provocative shows Woman (2016 Emmy Nominee)  and States of Undress from the brand-new VICELAND television channel developed by Peabody Award-winning VICE media.

 The final screening of this series surveys motherhood in two unique political and cultural contexts: Russia and the United States. It examines the roles and expectations of women in Russia and the importance of marriage and motherhood in the current political and cultural climate. We then return to the USA and visit with incarcerated women who are navigating through motherhood and the limited resources they are provided through the process. 

Special guests:

  •  Laurie Stoff, Senior Lecturer in Barrett, The Honors College at ASU, and Faculty Affiliate of the Melikian Center:   
    Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies at Arizona State University; and
  •  Shontell Di Nello Lege’, Project Coordinator, AZ Common Ground

 Both guests will join us to discuss themes explored in each episode.
