Target First Saturdays at The Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn @ 5 PM)
brooklynmuseum It's time once again to ask, can you name #5WomenArtists? We sure can. Tune into our Insta-stories throughout #WomensHistoryMonth where each day we'll be featuring a woman artist included in #HalfthePictureBKM—on view through March 31. First up, is the feminist #GuerrillaGirls collective who have long been at the front lines of conversations about oppression and exclusion, fearlessly and hilariously tackling sexism and racism in the arts, since their founding in 1985. Twelve of their iconic posters are currently on view in #HalfthePIctureBKM, including one from 1989 that declares “You’re seeing less than half the picture without the vision of women artists and artists of color.”⠀ ⠀ Guerrilla Girls (established United States, 1985). Guerrilla Girls' Pop Quiz, 1990. Offset lithograph. Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Gift of Guerrilla Girls BroadBand, Inc., 2017.26.28.
