    Russell Drisch: Gateway

    Press Releases ?
    • March 1989: The Brooklyn Museum’s Grand Lobby installation features a large triptych mural by the contemporary American artist Russell Drisch. The work, intended as a homage to spring, measures 20 feet by 60 feet and is entitled Gateway. Its central image is of a walkway leading through a garden bower to a distant gate which comprises 36 separate panels. Based on a black and white photograph, each panel is modified with the application of color -- deep blues, greens, blue-greens, aquamarine, and yellows. The installation opened March 9 and will be on view through May 22, 1989.

      Russell Drisch, a Brooklyn artist, was born in 1944 in Rock Island, Illinois. He trained in the theater, and is self-taught in photography. His work first began to draw attention in the early seventies, and since then he has had a number of important solo exhibitions in museums in the United States.

      The installation was coordinated by Laural Weintraub, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Museum. It was made possible, in part, by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. In addition, it received generous support from Mr. and Mrs. Armand J. Castellani, Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell Davidson III, Marianne Friedland, Myron and Bonnie Gottlieb, Mr. and Mrs. Frederic K. Houston, and other donors, and from the BACA Mural Project.

    "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"
