      The twenty-two artists in the exhibition are members of two Black artist organizations of Brooklyn, FREE ART MOVEMENT from the Bedford-Stuyvesant community and B.A.S.E. (BLACK ART STUDENT ELEVATION) from the Clinton Hill community. Both organizations were formed to foster increased exposure and recognition for the minority artist as well as greater awareness of the visual arts within their community.

      Participating in the exhibition are: (from B.A.S.E.) Eric Brown, Charles Combs, Oscar Farrar, Ogandipe Fayomi, Larry Pikes, Muhammed Hakeem, January Hunter, Edward Jennings, Frank Moore, Sam Quinones, Johnel Tracy; (from Free Art Movement) Tejumola Adetutu, Steave Bowser, Carlos Byron, Melvin Campbell, Jokulo Coper, Ray Daniels, Dwight Dates, Bill Hilton, Bill Howard, Warren Parker, and Ken Radcliffe.

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

      In conjunction with the exhibition, the Education Department’s Sunday People-to-People Program will present ON BLACK ART: A PANEL DISCUSSION on Sunday, September 30, at 2:00 P.M. in the Member's Room. The panel will consist of two artists from each organization who will discuss various aspects of Black art with the audience.

      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"
