Part of a reinstallation program in anticipation of the Bicentennial, when the Decorative Arts floor will be the only comprehensive collection on view in the New York area; the Metropolitan Museum’s American Wing will be closed at that time because of construction. Installed by Dianne Pilgrim, Associate Curator in Charge, Decorative Arts Department.

      Cross-Influences in the Ceramics of China, Persia, Turkey and Egypt. Thirty glazed ceramics from China and the lands of Islam are displayed to show points of mutual influence in their shapes, colors, motifs and designs. From the 9th to the 19th centuries, glazed ceramics travelled the breadth of Asia through trade and as gifts. While certain ceramic features remained unique to the country of origin, new steyle evolved from the blending of the foreign with the native, with the differences in seeming copies as important as the resemblances. The long and arduous routes of ceramic interchange are illustrated through explanatory texts as well as geographical and chronological maps. Selected by the staff of the Department of Middle Eastern Art and Archaeology.

    "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"
