    Prints from the Apocalypse Workshops of Brooklyn

    Press Releases ?
    • June 14, 1973: An exhibition of PRINTS FROM THE APOCALYPSE WORKSHOPS OF BROOKLYN opens in the Community Gallery of The Brooklyn Museun on June 24 and will remain on view through July 29. Included are lithographs, etchings, and other printmaking media.

      A printmaking cooperative, The Apocalypse Workshops of Brooklyn, begun three years ago, is located in the Fort Greene community of Brooklyn. The cooperative provides studio workshops in lithography and intaglio for its members. The group has developed an Education Workshop, using the facilities for classes where non-member artists from the community are introduced to printmaking techniques, as well as a Printmaking Research Workshop providing resource information for local printmaker-artists.

      All the members of Apocalypse are artists trained in local colleges. Most live in Brooklyn, and have held or hold positions as instructors in the public schools or colleges. Individually the members have exhibited extensively both nationally and locally. Participating in the exhibition are: Volker Antoni (Director of the Apocalypse Workshops), Lionel Chalier, Gylbert Coker, Leslie Cravzow, Wendy Hatch, Miguel Herrara, Constance Salamone, Margaret Shaw, Marilyn Sieger, Judith Stanley, and Judy Zerbe.

      The exhibition is made possible by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts.

      Also currently on exhibition at The Brooklyn Museum is the first comprehensive retrospective of the work of an important 19th century artist - WILLIAM TROST RICHARDS: AMERICAN LANDSCAPE AND MARINE PAINTER which will remain on view through July 29. ROBERT FRIED: PRINTS, POSTERS, AND DRAWINGS, in his first one-man exhibition in New York is in the Print Gallery through August 26. Admission is free.

    "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"
