How were infants and children fed and their births assisted in the past?  Have these objects and methods changed?  Lindsey Beal, a photo-based artist, will share her artwork and research into this history, including images photographed at the McGoogan Library in 2019.

Lindsey Beal is an artist and educator based in Providence, Rhode Island. She combines research about historical and contemporary women’s lives with historical photographic processes; often including sculpture, papermaking, and artist books in her work.  Inspired by the ways in which contemporary American society views women, she investigates how women lived in the past, drawing parallels and contrasts between women's lives then and now.  Lindsey’s work was featured in the New York Times, Slate France, BBC Mundo, and New Scientist, and shown in national museums, galleries and universities as well as published in various textbooks and periodicals.
