    Press Releases ?
    • November 1968: A dust sculpture, a fog room, and a leased steel environment are among 137 examples in an exhibition of art involved with new technology opening at The Brooklyn Museum on November 26. Entitled “Some More Beginnings,” the exhibition is being presented by Experiments in Art and Technology, Incorporated, an organization devoted to furthering collaboration between artists and engineers.

      The scientist’s application of technology to the imagination of the artist has produced fascinating new modes of expression. This alliance has created works that totally involve the onlooker, and in many cases require him to participate. Objects talk, move, blink, whir, make music, and demand response.

      The exhibition comprises paintings, reliefs, sculpture, constructions, environments and films, and will occupy the entire West Gallery and Sculpture Court on the fifth floor. The works are the result of an international competition held by E.A.T. which received 150 entries 95 of them collaborative efforts, from 19 states in this country, and from 8 foreign countries.

      “Some More Beginnings” will remain on view at The Brooklyn Museum through January 5, 1969.

    "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"
