Radical Women includes more than 260 works – including photography, video, and other experimental mediums as well as paintings, sculpture, and prints – by more than 120 artists working in 15 countries.
Expanding upon the exhibition to address the Latin communities of the New York audience, the Brooklyn Museum presentation will also include Nuyorican portraits by New York–born, Puerto Rican photographer Sophie Rivera.
Radical Women highlights work created during a period of profound political and social turmoil in many Latin American countries in the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s. Proposing both aesthetic and political radicality, the work in the exhibition foregrounds feminist concerns such as bodily autonomy, oppressive social norms, gendered violence and the environment.
