Re: birth is Spilt Milk’s second annual members’ exhibition, showcasing work by over forty national and international artists, in a diverse collection of work across all manner of media. The themes of the exhibition include birth and the maternal body, contemporary narratives of the mother and child relationship, abstract reflections on the domestic realm, as well as work exploring adoption, loss and the cycle of life.

Described as ‘a powerful testament to the birth of a mother’, the exhibition challenges the widespread censorship of depictions of the maternal experience, and presents an honest, multifaceted account of what it means to be a mother in today’s world.

The gallery will also be presenting Interruptions – a multi-media installation by Mother Art Revisited – an American collective of women artists dedicated to creating socio-political art.
