As part of their A Year of Yes, Brooklyn Museum is exhibiting a collection art by black woman artists of an unrecognized generation, entitled We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-85.
The new exhibit, part of a yearlong series of feminist exhibitions, includes over 200 works ranging from film to performance, sculpture to photography, and all created by radical black women of that revolutionary period.
Here’s a sneak peak of just a few of these images; we can’t wait to see more when it opens on April 21.
The exhibit will run April 21- September 17, 2017 at the Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY 11238 (which is free on the first Saturday of the month!). Learn more at brooklynmuseum.org.
