A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum to run from October 2016 to October 2017

October 21, 2016 @ 11:00 am - October 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm

To mark the 10th anniversary of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, the Brooklyn Museum is launching an institution-wide initiative, A Year of Yes, comprising ten distinct exhibitions and an extraordinary calendar of related public programs.

Taking the transformative contributions of feminist art during the last half-century as a starting point, A Year of Yes expands the parameters of feminist thinking from its critical roots in the struggle for gender parity to embrace broader social-justice issues of tolerance, inclusion, and diversity. Recognizing feminism as a driving force for progressive change, the Brooklyn Museum will use this anniversary year to advance timely conversations about civil rights and universal equity through its cultural programming.
Starting in October 2016, A Year of Yes will present a multiplicity of voices from the history of feminism and feminist art while also showcasing contemporary artistic practices and new thought leadership.
