The Great Mother

I picked up the catalog for the show "The Great Mother: Women, Maternity, and Power in Art and Visual Culture, 1900-2015" curated by Massimiliano Gioni in 2015. Great essays and interviews on how the image of the mother has been interpreted over the last 100 years or so under various socio-political and artistic movements over time. The exhibition featured male and female artists who challenged in their own creative manner the projected social constructs idealising the image of the mother at the time.
