We Wanted a Revolution Exhibition

The Brooklyn Museum will open We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 on April 21st, 2017. The exhibition will feature numerous Yale alumni and will remain on display until September 17th. According to the museum, this is “the first exhibition to highlight the voices and experiences of women of color—distinct from the primarily white, middle-class mainstream feminist movement—in order to reorient conversations around race, feminism, political action, art production, and art history in this significant historical period.”

Barbara Chase-Riboud MFA’60 and Lisa Jones ’83 will have their artwork included in the exhibition. The museum is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 11:00am to 6:00pm, with extended hours on Thursdays until 10:00pm.

In addition, Kellie Jones PhD’99 will speak at a symposium will be held on April 21st from 11:30am to 6:00pm in the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium on the museum’s 3rd Floor. Symposium attendance is included with museum admission, but RSVP to the event at [email protected] is required.
