BROOKLYN, NY.- The Brooklyn Museum announced A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum, ten distinct exhibitions and an extensive calendar of related public programs celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The Museum-wide series starts in October 2016 and continues through early 2018.

A Year of Yes presents a multiplicity of voices from the history of feminism and feminist art while also showcasing contemporary artistic practices and new thought leadership. The project recognizes feminism as a driving force for progressive change and takes the transformative contributions of feminist art during the last half-century as its starting point. A Year of Yes then reimagines the next steps, expanding feminist thinking from its roots in the struggle for gender parity to embrace broader social-justice issues of tolerance, inclusion, and diversity.

From exhibitions of renowned and trailblazing women artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe and Marilyn Minter, to a breakthrough survey of the lesser-known artist Beverly Buchanan; from a long-overdue historical account of the centrality of women of color in the emergence of second-wave feminism, to exhibitions with global contemporary artists enacting a future of equality, A Year of Yes pushes back against conventional barriers while expanding the canon.

A Year of Yes also delves into the history of the Brooklyn Museum itself, reexamining the radical, progressive, and largely unheralded contributions so often left out of traditional institutional histories. By reinterpreting the collection, amid ten special exhibitions and innovative public programming, the Museum will demonstrate how feminism's reenvisioning of the contemporary world has changed how we understand the artworks in the building, the culture that surrounds them, and the ways history gets written.

"The Brooklyn Museum is uniquely positioned to work from its broad historical holdings to lead vital conversations about how feminism must contribute to the urgent international dialogue about human rights. Art is more than something to stand in awe of and ponder. It tells us about ourselves and our past, and art leads to cultural change," said Anne Pasternak, the Museum's Shelby White and Leon Levy Director.
