The Drawing Out Obstetric Fistula exhibition in New York is finally official! (see below).
The show will bring together two bodies of work for the Drawing Out Obstetric Fistula project: the first series of drawings completed after my visit in 2014 to the Fistula Clinic at CCBRT in Tanzania, and a second brand new body of work completed after my second visit to Tanzania last year. As you can see from previous posts on this site, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to exhibit the first series of drawings at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in London last year. This show was kindly sponsored by Johnson and Johnson who are again sponsoring this second, much larger exhibit in New York, which is this time being organsed and hosted by the Kupona Foundation and partners. My sincere thanks to all those, too numerous to mention here individually, who have made this possible – and of course to all of the women themselves at the fistula clinic and The Mabinti Centre, who taught me much and with whom it was my privilege to work.
The exhibition will continue at the Kimmel galleries for six weeks from May 23rd.
