Everyday Madonna – Casula Powerhouse

EVERYDAY MADONNA

18 May 2019 – 30 Jun 2019 | 9.00am – 4.00pm

Everyday Madonna looks at motherhood from a variety of perspectives and societal expectations. The artists question cultural and popular images of mothers, such as the iconic Madonna & Child.

Beyond the societal and cultural expectations of mothers and what is deemed ideal, we find an expanded definition of mothers: real, imperfect, resilient, leaders of resistance and fierce protectors.

Everyday Madonna features works by these artists: Eddie Abd, Linda Brescia, Louisa Chircop, Karla Dickens, Mona Ibrahim, Nicole Monks, Susan O’Doherty, Pamela Rodoreda, Marikit Santiago, Rokeya Sultana.

Join us for the exhibition launch event on Saturday 18 May  (2-4pm)
