Yesterday the Brooklyn Museum opened the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The inaugrual exhibition, entitled Global Feminisms, includes this work, Priscilla Monge’s “Room for Isolation & Restraint (Cuarto de aislamiento y proteccion),” an “installation with sanitary napkins inside a wood-framed structure.”
To the right of the door is white bin overflowing with white disposable shoe covers and a sign saying “Please put on shoe covers before entering this room. Por favor, utilicen los cubre zapatos desechables para acceder a esta habitacion.”
Global Feminisms includes work by approximately eighty women artists and will be on display at the Sackler Center until July 1.
