Spilt Milk Gallery CIC is delighted to present their 2021 members exhibition; acting balance[d].


Acting balance[d] brings together 30 contemporary artists to consider what it means to be a mother and artist in the current climate.

Responding to the words ‘Balance, Pressure, Centred’ the selected works explore the artists’ unique experiences of navigating the duality of Mother and Artist roles in life, art and all that is in between. Humorous, confronting and questioning, the show touches on themes of mental health, the mythic and the contextualisation of self in society.

What does it mean to try and negotiate the balance of our responsibilities? What value do we place on maintaining an equilibrium? What really is realistic?

This is the fourth annual members show from Spilt Milk (the second online edition due to Covid). With a membership network of 250 international artists who identify as mothers, the members show is a fantastic opportunity to gain an insight into the diverse working practices of our membership who are each connected in thier roles as artists and mothers.
