Centered on WAM's purchase of Otto Dix's provocative painting, The Pregnant Woman (1931), the exhibition in 2019, With Child, explores the subject of pregnancy and birth in Dix's works. In addition, the exhibition will be the first to showcase exclusively the German artist's works on this theme. With Child and its programming will reflect on women's social, political, and medical conditions during the Weimar Republic (1918-1933), highlighting issues that are still relevant today. This timely exhibition will also include a commissioned work by contemporary artist Carmen Winant. Inspired by The Pregnant Woman, her multi-media piece, Ha Hoo Ha Ha Hoo Ha Ha Ha Hoo, gives a woman artist's voice to this universal topic.
