    "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"

    Brooklyn Museum Art School

    The Brooklyn Museum Art School opened at the Brooklyn Museum in 1941 and was transferred to the Pratt Institute's Continuing Education Division in 1985. While not a degree-granting institution, its chief purpose was the training of professional artists, although it also offered classes for amateurs. The Art School organized regular group and one-person exhibitions, which were held in the school's gallery and classrooms in the Museum's west wing.
