Ghada Amer on group exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum

Ghada Amer’s Heather’s Dégradé features on the Brooklyn Museum’s latest group exhibition, Half the Picture: A Feminist Look at the Collection (23 August – 31 March). Curated by Catherine Morris and Carmen Hermo, the exhibition presents new acquisitions, rediscoveries, and major works from the Brooklyn Museum collection from an intersectional feminist perspective, reflecting on contemporary conversations about feminism and culture. It highlights artists whose work commands our attention with direct messages of resistance and protest; questioning the historical narratives of the United States; calling for an understanding of how political realities are embedded in personal experience; exploring sexuality and exploitation in contexts of gendered power dynamics; and rethinking the biases present in art history and visual culture.
