MassArt x SoWa is pleased to present the gallery’s ninth alumni curatorial project, Matrescence, on view June 1 - July 14, 2024.

Curated by Catherine LeComte Lecce (MFA '23 Photography), Matrescence delves into the profound physical, psychological, and emotional changes experienced during pregnancy, childbirth, the postpartum period, and beyond. Featuring fifteen exceptional artists, the exhibition explores themes such as identity, postnatal medical care, miscarriage, caretaking, familial relationships, the decolonization of motherhood, and the navigation of the challenges and joys associated with parenting.The artists challenge societal norms surrounding artistry and motherhood through works in various mediums, including photography, video, painting, fiber arts, embroidery, sculpture, and installation. Matrescence stands as a poignant testament to the resilience and creativity of artist mothers, challenging entrenched stereotypes and celebrating the profound complexities of motherhood. 


.Join us at MassArt x SoWa for a First Friday opening reception on June 7, 5-9pm, and for a First Friday closing reception on July 5, 5-9pm.


Gallery Hours: 11am - 6pm Wednesday - Saturday // 11am-4pm Sunday // First Friday receptions: 5-9pm
