Mum’s not the word Childless Childfree by photographer Denise Felkin

Monday, June 17th, 2019
A photobook about women without children
Sharing stories of birth control, choice, freedom, regret and pain, Mum’s not the word challenges the negative attitudes within society towards people without children.
Why is it that women are expected to provide reasons for not having children, and yet deciding to have them does not require justification? With up to 20% of the female population being childless, this book aims to celebrate these often ignored ‘sheroes’ as a recognised breed of women.

Mum’s not the word debates the social stigmatisation of women, who, by choice, circumstance, or whatever reason, go against the instinct for childbirth and maternal productivity.

The subjects, photographed by award-winning photographer Denise Felkin, come from all walks of life: professionals, artists, some with mental health issues, some have fragile relationships with their birth mothers, and some who identify as other than heterosexual.

AWAD’s Founder and CEO has written the Foreword and Last Word.
Book launch event: Saturday 22 June 2019 2-5pm 19 Mallord Street, Chelsea. SW3 6AP
Entrance is through the double iron gates

Katrine Levin Galleries : The Woodblock Prints of Chen Li | 3 – 8 June 2019

Monday, May 27th, 2019

Coinciding with the display of Chen Li’s artwork at The British Museum

Chinese art and Western art have different views about reality. But when I paint, I ignore [these] rules to create living artistic images. (Chen Li)

China’s frontier Yunnan Province is a place of spectacular landscapes and predominantly Buddhist philosophy. It is the home of Chen Li.

Chen Li is a master woodblock printmaker and an extraordinary painter with a unique vision and boundless originality. His joyful, dynamic, and intoxicatingly peaceful works convey the life-affirming energy of Yunnan.

In his woodblock prints, Chen Li uses Yunnan’s rare “waste-block” or “suicide” technique that leaves no room for error. All colours are printed from a single woodblock, each step carving over the previous one until the block is destroyed. Only a single edition is possible.

Our fourth solo exhibition of Chen Li’s works coincides with the display of his “Human Buddha” woodblock print at The British Museum, just 8 minutes walk from the gallery. This work was acquired by the Museum after our first solo exhibition of his woodblocks in 2018.

WHEN: 3 – 8 June 2019
