Whitechapel Gallery - Anna Maria Maiolino: Making Love Revolutionary

Exhibition Dates: 25 September 2019 - 12 January 2020
Closed Mondays

Anna Maria Maiolino: Making Love Revolutionary is the first UK retrospective of one of the most pioneering artists working in Brazil today. With simple materials like clay, paper and ink Anna Maria Maiolino (b. 1942, Italy) constructs a fascinating world rooted in human conditions such as longing and motherhood, fragility, language and resistance. Frequently taking inspiration from her experience as an immigrant coming of age under Brazil’s military dictatorship, the artist chronicles sixty years of political, personal and cultural shifts.

Whitechapel Gallery brings together an extraordinary body of 150 works, many on display in the UK for the first time. The title Making Love Revolutionary reflects Maiolino’s exposure to the Argentinian Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo movement when living in Buenos Aires. Originating in the 1970s, it saw women march in defiance of the government to campaign for their children disappeared under dictatorship. Becoming a visible, unexpected and dynamic political force over decades, the mother’s love becomes revolutionary.
