Andrew Topolski: A Sound Measure/Beam-rider, Epilogue

Press Releases ?
  • Date unknown, 1987: A Sound Measure/Beam-rider, Epilogue, a large mixed-media installation by the contemporary artist Andrew Topolski, will be on view in The Brooklyn Museum’s Grand Lobby from July 2 to October 1, 1987. The work, which was completed in 1987, uses drawing, painting, sculpture, and sound to express the artist’s concerns for the environment, specifically those linked to radioactive/nuclear development. It is the culmination of several years of work by the artist on smaller projects, all of them targeting global concerns.

    Andrew Topolski was born in Buffalo, New York, in 1952 and studied film and printmaking at the State University of New York there, receiving his M.F.A. in 1977. Although he abandoned filmmaking in 1979, he has carried over a sense of sequential images into his present work. Since moving to Brooklyn in 1984, he has had a number of one-man exhibitions and has been included in group exhibitions nationwide. He was recently awarded a fellowship from the prestigious Saint-Gaudens Memorial Foundation.

    Since 1983 Topolski’s work has been based almost exclusively on the theme of nuclear energy and its modern concerns. By using geometric forms, derived from scientific texts and graphs, combined with highly personal imagery, the artist creates visual images with deeply complex meanings.

    "Hi Aimee, I think you mean Oreet Ashery? More information can be found in her profile on the Feminist Art Base: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/eascfa/feminist_art_base/gallery/oreet_ashery.php?i=266"

    "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"
