The Great Mother

Through the work of more than hundred artists, the exhibition The Great Mother analyzes the iconography of motherhood in the art and visual culture of the twentieth- and twenty-first centuries, from early avant-garde movements to the present. Whether as a symbol of creativity or as a metaphor for art itself, the archetype of the mother has been a central figure in the history of art, from the Venuses of the Stone Age to the "bad girls" of the postfeminist era and through centuries of religious works depicting innumerable maternity scenes.

The show is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, artistic director of the Fondazione Trussardi, Milan and of the New Museum, New York.
