To compliment Leanne Pearce’s first London exhibition Breastfeed (1 March - 1 April), Leyden Gallery is hosting a series of gallery talks, performances, and panel discussions running throughout the course of the exhibition during March curated by Adriana Cerne. These events are referred to as ‘feeds’ that openly lean towards a feminist undertaking with guests/panellists who will address breastfeeding as a subject pertinent to this moment; one that opens the world of discussion and larger debate.
Join the panel discussion about the important topic in contemporary society -Breastfeeding in Art on Saturday 11th March.
