Press Coverage of this Exhibition ?

  • Brooklyn Museum's Populism Hasn't Lured CrowdsJune 15, 2010 By ROBIN POGREBIN"When it opened a new glass entrance in 2004 meant to beckon the masses, the Brooklyn Museum said it hoped to triple attendance in 10 years by concentrating on a local audience. It had stopped worrying about competing with Manhattan museums or about its image -- despite its world-class collections -- as a poor man's Metropolitan Museum of Art...."
  • Sketching A Future For Brooklyn MuseumAugust 8, 2010 By ROBIN POGREBIN"THOUGH it resides in a prime example of traditional museum architecture -- a Beaux-Arts building designed in 1893 by McKim, Mead & White -- there is little stale or stodgy about the Brooklyn Museum. For more than a century the museum has been one of the country's most important cultural institutions, and for more than a decade it has also courted..."
  • ARTS, BRIEFLY; And 'Work of Art' Winner Is...August 13, 2010 By RANDY KENNEDY; Compiled by PATRICIA COHEN"''Technically, you have an amazing hand, but it was your heart that really moved us tonight.'' Those words, spoken by the gallery owner Bill Powers, are not ones you'd be likely to hear uttered in the real art world without a thick protective coating of irony. But ''Work of Art,'' the Bravo reality show whose first season came to a close Wednesday..."
  • ART; A Museum Show as a TV Contest PrizeAugust 19, 2010 By KAREN ROSENBERG"''Work of Art: Abdi Farah,'' at the Brooklyn Museum, is an uncanny echo of another current offering there, ''Andy Warhol: The Last Decade.'' Put another way, it presents the latest, not very satisfying results of Warhol's grand experiment in art stardom. The Farah exhibition opened on Saturday, a few days after the season finale of Bravo's reality..."

"Hi Aimee, I think you mean Oreet Ashery? More information can be found in her profile on the Feminist Art Base: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/eascfa/feminist_art_base/gallery/oreet_ashery.php?i=266"

"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"
