We visit the Whitechapel Gallery in London to explore their show Radical Figures: Painting in the New Millennium, with the curator Lydia Yee, and talk to one of the ten artists, Tschabalala Self. And we look at the Foundling Museum’s exhibition Portraying Pregnancy: From Holbein to Social Media with the curator Karen Hearn.
