Are you an art dealer who could do with the support of professional community?
I founded the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD) in 2009 in the midst of an economic crisis. Today, the international network is meeting online on a regular basis in support of the community throughout the pandemic. Members, prospective members (women/women-identifying art dealers) and Friends of AWAD (colleagues of any gender including dealers, gallery directors, art advisors, independent curators, gallery managers and art/history academics) are invited to join the conversation.
In Denise Felkin’s Mum’s Not the Word, you bear witness to fifty women making bold statements in the form of portraits accompanied by personal testimonies. For a plethora of reasons, they are not mothers and nor are they staying silent about this facet of their identity - not any longer, at least. Whether or not they’ve wanted to address it, the reality is that others in society continue to remind and question them about their identities as women who do not have children. These pages demonstrate some of the complexities surrounding the subject of children, in addition to the choices that women have in the 21st Century.
Following a number of years’ research and planning, the photographer sensitively captured the portraits in the private space of her studio in Brighton, England. Positioned in a striking and apposite foetal position, each subject was invited to provide a statement about the experience of being childless or childfree (continue reading for more on these terms). Common themes emerge, ranging from concern about over-population of the planet to ongoing hope that a child might still be in one’s future.
Denise set to pursuing this project as a way “to change attitudes & break-down stereotypes about women who don’t have children.”
