Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall
May 18 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewallcommemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising—a six-day clash between police and civilians ignited by a routine raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City—and explores its profound legacy within contemporary art and visual culture today. The exhibition draws its title from the rallying words of transgender artist and activist Marsha P. Johnson, underscoring both the precariousness and the vitality of LGBTQ+ communities. The exhibition presents twenty-eight 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.
When: Daily through December 2019, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Where: Crown Heights/Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway)
