Cathie Pilkington: 'Acts of Creation'
March 14, 2024
'Acts of Creation: On Art and Motherhood' will open tomorrow at the Arnolfini, Bristol. The show is the latest exhibition produced by Hayward Gallery Touring.

Featuring the work of ACS member Cathie Pilkington R.A., this major group exhibition shows the work of over 60 contemporary artists. It delves into the multifaceted experience of motherhood through three central themes: creation, maintenance, and loss. Acts of Creation: On Art and Motherhood expresses the nuanced realities of maternity, offering a diverse portrayal that intersects with current issues surrounding gender, politics, caregiving, and reproductive rights.

 

Curated by Hettie Judah, the show will travel to Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) in Birmingham (22 June to 29 September 2024), Millennium Gallery in Sheffield (24 October 2024 to 21 January 2025) and Dundee Contemporary Arts in spring 2025 (dates to be confirmed).
