Need to unwind? Our friends @MELOXTRA and @xojsmn of @electricpunanny are hosting a Mummy Masquerade to kick off your spooky season.

"We live in a world with this enormous bombardment of images. I try to slow everything down. I try to take this image-storm, and slow it down through this archaic, primitive medium of charcoal drawings." — Artist #RobertLongo discusses the practice and motivations behind his work in #proofbkm.

#JudyChicago's words are woven onto six banners that signal entrance into the reverential space of The Dinner Party. Since its 1980 @brooklynmuseum debut, 1.5 million people have walked past these banners on their way to one of the most important artworks of the 20th century. Open today, Roots of The Dinner Party: History in the Making is the first museum exhibition to examine Chicago’s evolving plans for The Dinner Party in depth, detailing its development as a multilayered artwork, a triumph of community art-making, and a testament to the power of historical revisionism. See #DinnerPartyRoots alongside #TheDinnerParty now through March 4, 2018.⠀

#JudyChicago has been a pioneer in the development of feminist art since the 1970s. Her most influential work is the sweeping installation #TheDinnerParty, a celebration of women’s achievements in Western culture, an icon of feminist art, a flashpoint for dialogue and controversy, and since 2007, the beating heart of our Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Join us tonight as we honor Chicago with a Women in the Arts award at our Yes! Gala. The event kicks off our two-day #BrooklynConference and gives an early look at our newest exhibition #dinnerpartyroots, opening Friday, Oct 20. Link in bio for details and tickets.

Until fairly recently, all upper-class Koreans maintained domestic shrines that were used for paying homage to their ancestors. Families who could not afford to set aside a whole building for ancestor worship would substitute paintings of those buildings, adding Great Grandfather’s name on the plaque in the doorway. This oversized shrine painting is too big for a home: it was made for a government building and is dedicated to the king and queen, who were like the parents of the country and were honored in much the same way by their subjects. #artsofkorea #한국미술

A little #bluesday inspiration from #bkmartsofamericas: This blue-and-white glazed tile from Puebla, Mexico, features an angel motif, suggesting that it was made for a church or other religious structure. The use of blue-and-white comes from the influence of Chinese porcelain trade goods that moved through Mexico in the eighteenth century, when it was under Spanish rule. Coveted by Europeans as a sign of wealth, blue-and-white porcelain was imitated by Mexican artisans for local use in churches and wealthy homes. #infinitebluebkm 🔵

The elaborate exterior, complete with a head and crown rendered in resin, conceals an incomplete mummy. CT scans revealed that, inside, there are only two bones and a lot of feathers to stand for the body of an ibis. This was an, unfortunately, common practice as ibis mummies were a very popular commodity for worshippers hoping to send messages to Thoth. Come see the fanciest mummy in #SoulfulCreatures!
