Press Releases ?
  • Fall approximately 1932: From September 12th through September 29th in the Library Gallery of the Brooklyn Museum will be shown a collection of Chinese textiles, belonging to Mr. Paul E. Vernon. The collection is of interest primarily to students and the opening of the exhibition coincides with the opening of the school year giving the pupils an opportunity to study the traditional motifs or Chinese design as exemplified in modern textile decoration. Besides the woven and embroidered textiles, there will be shown a number of costumes, wrought iron panels, and a group of toys.

    Mr. Vernon is a prominent resident of Brooklyn and a world traveler. This collection represents one gathered together by a casual tourist in the Orient, where Mr. Vernon traveled extensively last year.

    In the past Mr. Vernon has generously loaned valuable examples from his collection to institutions and schools for study purposes. A few years ago his collection of Batiks, gathered on a visit to Java, was shown at the Museum.

"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"
