Evening Reception

Symposia Event @ SUMD, 9th May 2011



The day was rounded off with an evening reception at Salford University Midwifery Department to present the old and new acquisitions and films.


One of two symposia we held to explore the visual representations of childbirth. We gathered artists, academics and curators to discuss the social, political and artistic implications of work around the subject of childbirth in contemporary art. The symposium coincided with the Mary Kelly retrospective at The Whitworth.



Listen to the talks and discussions from the day.
