Brooklyn Museum Celebrates Tenth Anniversary of Sackler Center with Year-Long Series

The Brooklyn Museum plans on celebrating the tenth anniversary of its Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art through a year-long series of exhibitions and events—titled “A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum”— beginning in October 2016 and ending sometime in early 2018.

According to a statement from the museum, this year-long program “presents a multiplicity of voices from the history of feminism and feminist art while also showcasing contemporary artistic practices and new thought leadership. The project recognizes feminism as a driving force for progressive change and takes the transformative contributions of feminist art during the last half-century as its starting point. [It] then reimagines the next steps, expanding feminist thinking from its roots in the struggle for gender parity to embrace broader social-justice issues of tolerance, inclusion, and diversity.”

There will be exhibitions by Marilyn Minter, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Beverly Buchanan; a historical account regarding the importance of women of color throughout feminism’s second wave; and programming that will explore the history of the Brooklyn Museum itself.
