Join me for a day visiting Bristol galleries including the Arnolfini for its major exhibition:

 Acts of Creation: On Art and Motherhood  plunging into the joys and heartaches, mess, myths and mishaps of motherhood through over 100 artworks, from the feminist avant-garde to the present day.

Featuring the work of more than 60 modern and contemporary artists, it will address diverse experiences of motherhood across three themes: Creation, which looks at conception, pregnancy, birth and nursing; Maintenance which explores motherhood and caregiving in the day-to-day; and Loss, which touches on miscarriage and involuntary childlessness, as well as reproductive rights.

Featuring painting, photography, sculpture, sound and film, artists in the exhibition include: Bobby Baker, Eileen Cooper, Rineke Dijkstra, Tracey Emin, VALIE EXPORT, Hepworth, Joffe, Sally Mann, Wangechi Mutu, Celia Paul, Paula Rego, Su Richardson, Jenny Saville etc.
