    40 From Israel, Contemporary Sculpture & Drawing

    Press Releases ?
    • March 1988: 40 from Israel: Contemporary Sculpture and Drawing, an exhibition of 80 works by a representative group of 40 contemporary Israeli artists who work in the mainstream of international art, will open at The Brooklyn Museum April 18 and remain on view in the Prints and Drawings Galleries, located on the second floor, through June 27, 1988. Artists represented include Zigi Ben-Haim, Pinchas Cohen-Gan, Teresa Gejer, Menashe Kadishman, Osvaldo Romberg, and Igael Tumarkin, as well as others who are less well known in the United States. Theworks, one drawing and one sculpture by each artist, have not been seen before outside Israel.

      The exhibition emphasizes the important relationship between artists’ drawings and their sculpture. The wide variety of media and styles is evidence of the personal and individual character of the art being produced in Israel today. 40 from Israel has been organized and selected by Reviva Regev, artist and teacher at Teachers Art College, Ramat Hasharon, in cooperation with Linda Konheim Kramer, Curator of Prints and Drawings at The Brooklyn Museum.

      40 from Israel is one of a number of cultural events being presented in Brooklyn initiated by the Brooklyn Borough President, Howard Golden, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Israel’s founding. It has been made possible, in part, with generous support from Victor and Alice Franco, Little Bitty, Inc, and the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Division of Cultural Relations, with transportation assistance provided by El Al Israel Airlines.

    "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"
