      EVENT DETAILS
      Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

      Based upon the New York Times bestselling book of the same name, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an original exhibition created in partnership with the book’s co-authors: journalist Irin Carmon, a national reporter at MSNBC, and attorney Shana Knizhnik, who founded the popular Tumblr that earned Ginsburg Internet fame (and amused the Justice herself).

      Like the book, Notorious RBG the exhibition will offer a visually rich, entertaining, yet rigorous look at the Justice’s life and career. Through archival photographs and documents, contemporary art, media, and interactives, the exhibition will present a unique take on the American legal system and civic rights movements through the lens of Ginsburg’s personal experiences and public service. It will tell the parallel stories of Ginsburg’s remarkable life and the ongoing expansion of “We the People” to include those long left out of the Constitution’s promises and will examine her continuing work to protect civil rights and equal opportunity for all.

      Woven throughout the exhibition will be briefs and other writings by Ginsburg, including some of her most famously searing dissents. In keeping with the spirit of Carmon and Knizhnik’s book, the exhibition will riff off the playful connection between the Justice and Notorious B.I.G. (as she likes to point out, they were both born and bred in Brooklyn, New York): for example, the name of each gallery section will allude to a song or lyric from the late hip-hop artist.
