Nurse-in kicks off ArtCenter/South Florida’s latest exhibition featuring five foot aluminum breast
Surprising Event Kicks off Art Center/ South Florida’s Latest Exhibition: Mothers encouraged to come and breastfeed around a sculpture their babies are sure to recognize!
Quantum Shift Art Exhibition featuring London Tsai and Judith Berk King will kick off early on Friday evening (May 11th at 6pm) in the spirit of Mother’s Day with a surprising event.
A Call to All Breastfeeding Mothers was put out earlier in the week by artist London Tsai who has a network of alternative health practitioners, birth workers, and breastfeeding mothers. The call encouraged breastfeeding mothers to come nurse around a piece their babies are sure to recognize. The “piece” refers to a five-foot tall breast made of welded aluminum, which London Tsai will be exhibiting for the first time. Tsai explains: “The idea for the breast came to me after the birth of my second child. It just feels right that it be unveiled for the first time in a more intimate context among mothers, babies, and midwives.
“The breast is something everyone can connect to: aside from its being a source of life nourishment, there is its undeniable aesthetic beauty and huge symbolic meaning--the breast is fundamental.”
