About

This exhibition will explore representations of motherhood as seen through the works of eight contemporary artists. Pieces on display will aim to challenge long-held stereotypes and sentimental views of motherhood while addressing issues such as gender roles, domesticity, the body and the identity of individuals within the family unit. Photographers and artists taking part include Janine Antoni (b. 1964, Bahamas), Elina Brotherus (b. 1972, Finland), Elinor Carucci (b. 1971, Israel), Ana Casas Broda (b. 1965, Spain), Fred Hüning (b. 1966 Germany), Leigh Ledare (b. 1976, USA), Katie Murray (b.1974, USA) Hanna Putz (b. 1987, Austria). The exhibition is curated by Susan Bright in collaboration with the Foundling Museum.
