    Press Releases ?
    • April 27, 1926: On May first the Brooklyn Museum will open a special exhibition of Berber and Arab weavings from Morocco. This collection has been assembled by Miss Eliza Karia Niblack with the aid and co-operation of the French officials in the work of the Fine Arts Department of Morocco. The collection comprises many typical and unique examples of the work of the various Moroccan tribes and includes wall hangings and shawls from the central portion and from the tribes of the Atlas Mountains. There are a number of gauze hangings woven with metal threads and with silk which has not been degummed, brilliantly colored brocaded belts and several examples of tie-dyed belts made by the Jebala tribe in the Riff. There are numerous examples of costumes including burnooses made by the Shleueh tribes, and haiks from the central tribes in the neighborhood of Fez. Contemporary weavings are also shown, as well as a reproduction of an old hanging made in the Weaving School of Rabat under the auspices of the French, together with examples of leather work and jewelry, both Berber and Arab. The exhibition is shown in the galleries of the Department of Decorative Art on the second floor of the Museum's new wing.

    "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"
