We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-...

Presented by Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston at The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston

We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 is the first exhibition to highlight the voices and experiences of women of color—distinct from the primarily white, middle-class mainstream feminist movement—in order to reorient conversations around race, feminism, political action, art production, and art history in this significant historical period. The exhibition features a wide array of work, including performance, film, and video art, as well as photography, painting, sculpture, and printmaking by a diverse group of artists and activists who lived and worked at the intersections of avant-garde art worlds and radical political movements.

Artists include Camille Billops, Elizabeth Catlett, Julie Dash, Maren Hassinger, Jae Jarrell, Lorraine O’Grady, Howardena Pindell, Faith Ringgold, Betye Saar, Lorna Simpson, and Carrie Mae Weems, among many others.
