This exhibition brought together works by contemporary artists Mat Collishaw, Tracey Emin and Paula Rego which resonate with the history of the Foundling Hospital. Displayed throughout the Museum, outside the building as well inside, the works explored the pain and anguish associated with aspects of childhood, motherhood, abortion and loss.
