M________, the Menopause Project

Social Sculpture

Mixed Media


M______ was a social sculpture envisioning community infrastructure for adult health and aging. Specifically geared towards education, practices and conversations around female health and aging, M________ offered space for people with ovaries and those who love them to externalize questions, curiosities, feelings, and thoughts about Menopause.

Comprised of several parts, the project offered multiple access points to ideas and information around health and aging: artist multiples inspired by health and aging by Amy Khoshbin, Chlöe Bass and Macon Reed, a Menopause library, and 14 free public programs and workshops.




M________ was generously supported by
the Brooklyn Arts Council and Recess and Assembly
