ANGER MANAGEMENT @ THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM
The Brooklyn Museum
200 Eastern Parkway Brooklyn, New York 11238
September 28th– November 12th 2017
The Brooklyn Museum has just opened its newest pop-up titled Anger Management, curated by Marilyn Minter and Andrianna Campbell with support from Chad Philips, Brooklyn Museum Director of Merchandising. It features limited edition items with themes like resistance, protest, and hope. Anger Management opens September 28th and will run until November 12th. It features artists including Zoe Buckman, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Glenn Ligon, Robert Longo, Faith Ringgold, Laurie Simmons, Hank Willis Thomas, Mary Ping and many more! Artists will also donate a portion of proceeds to charities of their choosing, and the balance of the proceeds will support the Brooklyn Museum.
“We titled this pop-up shop Anger Management in order to highlight our response to, and our displeasure with, so many wrongs: the immigration ban; the attacks on the EPA; the continued violence against people of color, queer and gender-nonconforming individuals, and religious minorities; the intimidation tactics of white supremacists and a blossoming Neo-Nazi movement (when we lost more than 400,000 Americans fighting Nazis and fascism abroad); and the rescission of labor rights and workers’ benefits. As educated individuals, anger seems like an irrational response, but at this stage, it is the most rational response that we have.”– Andrianna Campbell and Marilyn Minter
2017 has marked numerous politically themed exhibitions, including The Whitney Museums’s latest show, AN INCOMPLETE HISTORY OF PROTEST. Last January, The Untitled Space gallery addressed themes of anger, protest, and resistance with their politically themed all-female art exhibition UPRISE/ANGRY WOMEN, curated by Indira Cesarine. The exhibit featured 80 artists in protest to the election of Donald Trump and raised funds for the ERA with non-profit ERA COALITION.
