Angelina Jolie posted rare photos of herself and daughter Zahara Jolie-Pitt out together at the Brooklyn Museum and shared a carousel of photos on Instagram of their visit. The 17-year-old college student was with her mother to watch the show Death to the Living: Long live waste, by artist Duke Riley. The exhibition shows marine pollution, a subject close to Jolie’s heart.
The artist himself toured his show with the couple, giving them an intimate look at his work. Jolie was wearing a long black coat over high heeled black boots and she was carrying a large brown leather bag. Zahara was wearing jeans and a long-sleeved black t-shirt.
“Z and I went to see the @dukerileystudio exhibit at the Brooklyn museum,” Jolie wrote in her caption. “In Duke’s latest show at the Brooklyn Museum, DEATH TO THE LIVING, Long Live Trash, his reinterpretations of maritime folk art—made using trash removed from the ocean—reveal plastic pollution that, along with climate change and habitat loss, is pushing our ocean ecosystems to collapse.”
She shared a series of images of the art, which consists of tiled paintings and sculptures of modern plastic objects carved in maritime imagery and style.
Zahara started attending school at Spelman College this year, and Jolie was recently spotted at the university to celebrate homecoming weekend. She also shared a photo of Zahara with her new friends at the HBCU on Instagram.
“Zahara with her Spelman sisters!” Jolie wrote. “Congratulations to all the new students starting this year. A very special place and an honor to have a family member as a new Spelman girl.”
In addition to Zahara, Jolie has five other children, 14-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, 16-year-old Shiloh, 18-year-old Pax and 20-year-old Maddox.
