    Process on Paper: Recent Acquisitions

    Press Releases ?
    • April 1997: An exhibition of more than 90 works on paper that have been acquired over the past ten years will be presented at the Brooklyn Museum of Art from June 7, 1997, to September 28, 1997. Process on Paper: Recent Acquisitions— Prints, Drawings, and Photographs consists of a variety of works that represent a broad range of styles and techniques. This exhibition includes prints by Vito Acconci, Louise Bourgeois, Ernest Crichlow, Lyonel Feininger, and Jacques Villon; drawings by John Singleton Copley, John Singer Sargent, and Kiki Smith; and photographs by Vivian Cherry, Roy DeCarava, David Levinthal, and Lorna Simpson.

      These works, acquired over the past ten years by the Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Museum, demonstrate its commitment to continually strengthening the collection with a wide range of material. The extent of subject matter and technique explored by these artists allow the collection to be shown and interpreted in various ways. One main focus of this exhibition will be to educate the public about different technical processes such as lithography, etching, monotype, gelatin silver prints, and serigraphy; informative texts will be placed next to relevant works that illustrate each specific process.

      Each work represents a significant addition to the collection. The show will include notable print works such as Vasily Kandinsky’s 1903 woodcut Sängerin (The Singer) and a 1994 lithograph from Elizabeth Murray titled Shack. Drawings exhibited will include a number of 19th century works by American artists such as William Trost Richards, John Singer Sargent, and Elihu Vedder. The photographs on display will include gelatin silver prints from Emmet Gowin's Danville, Virginia, series and works from Aaron Siskind’s travels in Mexico.

      Process on Paper. Recent Acquisitions—Prints, Drawings, and Photographs
      has been organized by Marilyn Kushner, Curator of Prints and Drawings, and Barbara Millstein, Associate Curator of Photographs, at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

      "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"

Collections of the former Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs include works on paper that may fall into other categories: American Art, European Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and Photography.
      The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference.

We welcome your feedback about corrections.
      For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the informative text panels written by the curator or organizer. Called "didactics," these panels are presented to the public during the exhibition's run, and we reproduce them here for your reference and archival interest. Please note that any illustrations on the original didactics have not been retained, and that the text may contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
