With curator Catherine Morris, we talk about A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum. The brilliant series of thematic exhibitions and programs on feminism and feminist art celebrates the 10th anniversary of Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party inspires this complex project. Featured in our conversation: Beverly Buchanan: Rituals and Ruins, Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty, Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern, and the 2017 version of Utopia Station.
Today’s episode marks an epic moment in the cultural history of the United States. This week, with the inauguration of our 45th president, we enter an era of capitalist conservative politics. Anticipating a protracted culture war over the next four years, we know that art and activism will become more vital than ever.
Feminists are taking the first step in claiming everyone’s right to equality, diversity, and inclusion. On DAY TWO of the new administration, hundreds of thousands will join in Women’s rallies and marches across our country, demonstrating the power of peaceful protest.
