Artwork for the 2010 NAEA Women’s Caucus Exhibition: Visualizing Social Justice

Here is my take on the notions of pregnancy/visual culture for the 2010 women’s caucus exhibit.

Image 1,
Two images that represent the glamorization and sexualization of pregnancy in our visual culture.
Left: Demi Moore, Vanity Fair, 1991
Right: Britney Spears, Harper’s Bazzar, 2006
Image 2
Here two images depict a woman who is grasping her pregnant belly. The focus is on the life inside the womb instead of the constructed material world.
Image 3
Here two images depict the naked abdomen of a pregnant woman. The linea negra, a black vertical line that appears in about three quarters of all pregnancies is visible. In these images the pregnant body is celebrated in its sensual, imperfect form.
