Madonna & Marilyn Minter speaking at Brooklyn Museum on Inauguration Eve

The night before the presidential inauguration (January 19), Madonna and artist Marilyn Minter will hold a discussion at Brooklyn Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium. The official rundown:

On the eve of the presidential inauguration, join Madonna and Marilyn Minter—two fearless feminist provocateurs—as they talk art, culture, feminism, and the current state of affairs. Connecting Madonna, an artist, activist, and philanthropist, with Minter, whose work explores cultural perceptions of women, this unprecedented conversation will highlight the impact of female artists within broader culture and social change. Moderated by poet, essayist, and playwright Elizabeth Alexander and by Anne Pasternak, Shelby White and Leon Levy Director of the Museum.

This historic program is part of our A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum, a yearlong series of exhibitions and programs celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

Tickets for that talk go are currently on sale to members of Brooklyn Museum and will go on sale to the general public today at 4 PM. If you’re going you might want to visit the Iggy Pop nude portraits exhibit.

Madonna will then be heading to DC for the Million Woman March, which she announced with this Nike-inspired tweet:
