Project AfterBirth

Belinda Kochanowska, 'Germination', Project AfterBirth

Saturday 3 October – Saturday 13 November (exhibition closes at 12 pm)


Project AfterBirth is the first ever international open exhibition on the subject of early parenthood.

The exhibition features 39 unseen or rarely shown works in visual, performance, literary, film and digital art, created in the 21st century by 30 international contemporary female and male artists in response to their own pregnancy, birth or new parenthood experiences

At times hilarious and at times deeply moving, the exhibition will resonate with most people’s individual birth and childhood journeys and/or their experiences as parents and stands to leave a lasting impression on audiences of all ages. The exhibition is also a first in demonstrating the profound influence pregnancy, birth and new parenthood experiences can have on the practice of 21st century female and male artists.

Project AfterBirth’s exhibition premieres at White Moose from 3rd October until 13th November 2015, with the aim to tour to a number of UK, European and USA art spaces and online platforms in 2016-19.
