The M Word brings together artists working with concepts that revolve around the maternal experience, motherhood and maternal mental health. Including photography, painting, sculpture and etching, all the works actively challenge society’s attitudes toward maternal subjectivity and position the mother in the foreground, clearly stating that they shouldn’t be afraid of being seen or being judged. They impart a strong sense of the horror, humour, love and hate, and express those ambivalent feelings that are often experienced but not really acknowledged or accepted, during motherhood.
Exhibiting artists: Paula Chambers, Leni Dothan, Tracey Kershaw, Sophia Marinkov Jones, Leanne Pearce, Megan Wynne, Dawn Yow, Katy Howe. Curated by Amy Dignam
Including Artists Talk: Sat 4 May 2.30 pm. Free. All welcome.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a full programme of workshops. See our website for details.
