Through sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, video, installation, and performance, Global Feminisms explores the definition of feminist art at the turn of the new millennium. Featuring work made since 1990 by women artists from around the world, this exhibition questions what it means to be a feminist artist today, and how gravely that differs in varying cultural, political, and social contexts. Gender, sexuality, violence, power, politics, and, ultimately, identity, are among the sources and subjects of this momentous show. Building upon and transcending groundbreaking feminist scholarship of the 1970s, Global Feminisms will present cutting edge contemporary art that is international in scope and challenging in nature.
Global Feminisms has been organized by the Brooklyn Museum.
