The curator of the acclaimed Getting Naked exhibit in 2017 at TheMuseum is back again, this time exploring the topic of menstruation.

“I’m not afraid, and neither is TheMuseum, but it’s not about being provocative, it’s about opening up the conversation around these topics,” said Eichorn.

The exhibit, called Flow, will take place at TheMuseum starting March 6. It will run until May 28, World Menstrual Hygiene Day.

The show will include a variety of artistic media, including installation, performance, dance, paint and embroidery. Using previous connections, Eichorn approached artists who have taken on taboo health-related topics in the past, but some artists also contacted her once they heard about the show.

In addition to tackling the stigma of reproductive health, the exhibit will explore various topics as they relate to menstruation. Income levels, for example, play a role in menstrual hygiene.
