Starting April 18, The Museum of Contemporary Photography will be presenting the works of nine photographers in an exhibition entitled, Home Truths: Photography and Motherhood. The opening reception, held from 5 to 7pm will introduce gender roles, domesticity and identity.
The exhibition is primarily autobiographical and features intimate and personal photographs, sometimes re-definining, other times supporting, the classical interpretation of "motherhood". MoCP is presenting, Janine Antoni, Elina Brotherus, Elinor Carucci, Ana Casas Broda, Ann Fessler, Tierney Gearon, Fred Hüning, Katie Murray and Hanna Putz in this documentary geared exhibition.
The Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) functions in conjunction with Columbia College and is located at 600 S. Michigan Ave. The exhibition, Archive State, is currently being exhibited and will be up until April 6. The work presented is a collection of found photographs and digital documentation which explores specific regions and/or individual places.
In addition to the opening reception, there will be other events surrounding Home Truths: Photography and Motherhood, including a gallery talk on the 23rd at 4pm and a lecture about photography on the 24th at 6:30pm.
