A direct response to the crucial social and political issues that have dominated the global conversation in the past year, Brooklyn Museum’s new exhibition, Half the Picture: A Feminist Look at the Collection, is an ambitious and essential new look at aspects of their permanent collection. The show presents work by over 50 practitioners from the past 100 years, tackling wide-ranging and poignant issues from gender inequality to racial discrimination.
