The Museum of Contemporary Photography in Columbia, Ohio, has curated the group showcase ‘Reproductive: Health, Fertility, Agency’ – exploring women’s personal realities in the years leading up to, during, and after fertility. The exhibition presents eight series dedicated to themes such as birth, miscarriage, pleasure, the lack of access to abortion, trauma, and the loss of fertility. Continues until May 23, 2021.
The meaning of the term ‘reproductive’ is twofold: it not only applies to procreation, but also to the nature of a photograph – which highlights the notable lack of visual representation of the female experience. The term is also used in reference to a common patriarchal and capitalist view of women’s bodies as vehicles for reproduction.
With works by Laia Abril, Candice Breitz, Elinor Carucci, Krista Franklin, Doreen Garner, Candy Guinea, Joanne Leonard, and Carmen Winant.
