CAA Arts Access with the Black Alumni Council and Columbia College Women invite you to join us on September 10, 2017 for a special afternoon exploring the exhibition We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-85. The exhibition is organized by Catherine Morris, Sackler Family Senior Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, and Rujeko Hockley CC'05, PhD, former Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum. We will meet in the lobby of the Brooklyn Museum starting at 2:30 p.m. for check-in. We have several tours starting from 3:00 p.m. Our group will be divided into smaller groups of 15 people per group.
About the exhibition: Focusing on the work of black women artists, We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965?85, examines the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women of color during the emergence of second-wave feminism. It 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. Presenting a diverse group of artists and activists who lived and worked at the intersections of avant-garde art worlds, radical political movements, and profound social change, the exhibition features a wide array of work, including conceptual, performance, film, and video art, as well as photography, painting, sculpture, and printmaking.
