Brooklyn Museum, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, 4th Floor, New York, USA
Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall, co-curated by Margo Cohen Ristorucci and three other curators, presents twenty-two LGBTQ+ artists born after 1969 whose works grapple with the unique conditions of our political time, and question how moments become monuments. Through painting, sculpture, installation, performance, and video, these artists engage interconnected themes of revolt, commemoration, care, and desire.
