Motherhood & Art | Tate

This film delves into the subject of motherhood as seen through the eyes of artists, providing a fresh insight into maternity as an art-historical subject and revealing the ways in which it has been confronted and re-imagined over the past 400 years. Whether we are mothers ourselves, or whether we bring or nurture life in a wider sense, we all have some understanding of motherhood. Giving birth to their creations, artists have represented this vital and complex subject in a variety of ways, providing insight into what motherhood might mean, its joys and challenges, and seeking to articulate its unspoken aspects. Ann Coxon is Curator of International Art at Tate. Her book, Motherhood is available now: https://ift.tt/t6aGzxM Subscribe for weekly films: http://goo.gl/X1ZnEl
