Ikon hosts Feeding Chair (2022), a collaborative artwork which invites parents and carers to feed their young children in galleries and other public venues.
Featuring artwork by artist Jade Montserrat, the chair integrates audio works and videos about infant feeding, gender and public space. The work acts as a focus for sharing experiences and challenging social attitudes towards feeding and mothering and Ikon’s presentation is accompanied by a number of public workshops and talks.
The chair is part of Feed, an arts-based project developed by In Certain Places at University of Central Lancashire, in collaboration with Corridor8 and Textbook Studio.
This presentation is supported by Birmingham City Council Public Health.
This exhibition is presented as part of Ikon’s 60th anniversary year.
