- Ms. Weems! Still one of my favorite pieces ever. I saw this within the #WeWantedaRevolution show @brooklynmuseum for the second time today. This time I also took in the Georgia O'keeffe show on the same visit. I admire both exhibitions but it is telling to see them exist side by side. I wonder when I will see a presentation (of any form) of a Black woman's work and life that so fully reveres her-- literally down to her old worn-down shoes? Snow White, and don't you forget it.

- In early 1971, Kay Brown, Dindga McCannon, and Faith Ringgold gathered a group of black women at McCannon’s Brooklyn home to discuss their common frustrations in trying to build their careers as artists. Out of this initial gathering came one of the first exhibitions of professional black women artists, “Where We At”—Black Women Artists, 1971. Adopting the show’s title as their name, the collective began meeting at members’ homes and studios, building support systems for making their work, while assisting each other with personal matters such as childcare. #wewantedarevolution⠀

- When you can't live in the museum, you can bring the museum into your home via this lovely Sourcebook which captures the exhibition in its totality. Very pleased, I am. . . We Want A Revolution Black Radical Women 1965-85 is currently on exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum through September. "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."- Brooklyn Museum website. . . . . . #book #books #bookworm #booknerd #bookporn #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #reading #bookaddict #bookaholic #bookish #instabook #instaread #readers #readersofinstagram #blackauthors #womenempowerment #wewantedarevolution #blackfeminist #blackfeminism #feminism #feminist #bookcollection #bookshelf #instaread #instabooks #blackwriters #readersofinstagram #bookphotography #booklover #womenwriters

- My #wcw comes from the amazing show @brooklynmuseum "We Wanted A Revolution: Black Radical Women 1965-1985." I was so excited to see in person the wonderful costume made by Lorraine O'Grady for her pivotal first performance piece in 1980 "Mlle Bourgeoise Noire" when she wore this dress made of 180 gloves and went on to the opening of @newmuseum and Just Above Midtown Gallery uninvited to demand attention for black female artists. "Mlle Bourgeoise Noire Costume" 1980 and "Untitled (Mlle Bourgeoise Noire)" 1980-1983/2009 Gelatin Prints. #blackradicalwomen #performance #1980s #wewantedarevolution #activism #feminist #blacklivesmatter #femaleartist #brooklyn #performanceart #brooklynmuseum #feminism #newyorkcity #newyork #newyorkart #lorraineogrady

- Lorna Simpson "Waterbearer" (1986). When I think about the verdict in the Philando Castile Murder, I think about his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds, who recorded her boyfriends murder and gave witness testimony in the trial. I think of his mother, Valerie Castile and her painful reaction to the verdict. I think of his 4 year old daughter who watched her father murdered then watched his murderer go free. I then think of Lorna Simpson's "Waterbearer" and how all three of these women will spend the rest of their lives having their memories continually discounted. I then think about how much all of this hurts. "Waterbearer" is currently on view at the WE WANTED A REVOLUTION exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. #philandocastille #wewantedarevolution #blacklivesmatter
