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.
