In the creation of this exhibition, artists Jules Arthur, Michelle Browder, Jeremy Daniel and Michelle Hartney dignify the experiences of Anarcha, Betsey and Lucy, the enslaved Black women, J. Marion Sims operated on during the 19th century.

By shifting the narrative from that of the reported scientific advances of Sims’ corrective gynecological surgeries, these artists emphasize the profound significance of “The Mothers of Gynecology” by placing their stories at the center of their artwork.
