    Timothy Greenfield-Sanders: The Latino List

    Press Releases ?
    • July 1, 2011: A new exhibition of large-format, full-color photographic portraits, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders: The Latino List, will be on view at the Brooklyn Museum from August 19 through December 11, 2011, exploring the personal stories of some of today’s most influential Latino Americans from the fields of culture, politics, business, and sports. America Ferrera, Gloria Estefan, Pitbull, Eva Longoria, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and Chi-Chi Rodríguez are among the twenty-five subjects featured.

      The exhibition will include excerpts from an accompanying documentary film, also called The Latino List, directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders with interviews conducted by Emmy Award–winning journalists Maria Hinojosa and Sandra Guzman. In this film, which will premiere on HBO on September 29, 2011, the people in Greenfield-Sanders’s photographs are seen and heard directly sharing their stories and experiences as Latinos in America. In the manner of The Black List Project, Greenfield-Sanders’s 2008 exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum that offered insights on what it means to be African-American in contemporary society, the portraits and filmed monologues of The Latino List collectively explore the meaning of “Latino” in the twenty-first century and illuminate the richness and diversity of Latino life in America.

      Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’s photographs are in the permanent collections of major museums, among them the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Portrait Gallery, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Brooklyn Museum. A contributing photographer to Vanity Fair, Greenfield-Sanders is also the producer and director of the Grammy award-winning 1997 film Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart.

    "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"
