Things to Do After ‘Dinner’

Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party dominates the Brooklyn Museum’s new feminist-art wing (opening March 23)—but there’s far more to see there than that one provocative work.

  1. 1. Global Feminisms

    Through July 1

    Women from across the globe—like Regina José Galindo, whose video installation depicts her bloody-footed trek through Guatemala in remembrance of murdered women—have their artistic say.

  2. 2. Pharaohs, Queens, and Goddesses

    Through September 16

    Works from the museum’s world-class Egyptian collection, viewed through a feminist filter: Catch a rare glimpse of the female king Hatshepsut not in her customary king drag but in the pharaoh’s crown and a dress.

  3. 3. An Art of Our Own: Women Ceramicists from the Permanent Collection

    Open-ended run

    Beautiful work in a field in which women broke the glass ceiling earlier than most. Worth seeking out: Beatrice Wood’s sparkly earthenware chalice and Maija Grotell’s modernist, undulating vase.
