M is for Menopause, Baby! is a group exhibition that aims to raise awareness and challenge the myths, stereotypes, and stigma that surrounds the menopausal journey. By 2025, it’s estimated that 1.1 billion women will be experiencing menopause, or “The Change” as it is frequently called. But what is menopause? What exactly does it mean to be perimenopausal or postmenopausal? What is surgical menopause? What happens to the body during a hot flash? We’ll answer these questions and more by using art to help reframe the narrative about menopause. The exhibition is being presented by Drinking Gourd Gallery in partnership with Rocky Mount Mills, Kiki Piper, and UNC Health Nash. Curating this exhibition are Carol Torian, founder of Drinking Gourd Gallery and Kirsten Moore, founder of Kiki Piper.
