    Press Releases ?
    • February 2007: More than thirty female artists are included in An Art of Our Own: Women Ceramicists from the Permanent Collection, an installation of eighty objects presented in conjunction with the opening of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum on March 23, 2007.

      An Art of Our Own
      includes work by well-known ceramicists but also presents works by little-known artists from Europe and North America, represented by a diverse selection of objects, that includes vases, bowls, plates, tea sets, and other vessels. Also on view will be examples of “china painting” by largely anonymous women working in the Aesthetic Movement and Arts and Crafts styles during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as well as works by Native American potters.

      The exhibition includes several pieces by Eva Zeisel, who has pioneered innovative design throughout the twentieth century. Born in Budapest in 1906, Zeisel has been designing ceramics for more than eighty years and continues to create new works. She has been honored with the National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement by the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, and has received an Honorary Doctorate from the Rhode Island School of Design.

      Among other artists represented in the installation are Beatrice Wood, Andrée Putman, Elsa Rady, Maija Grotell, and Betty Woodman.

      An Art of Our Own: Women Ceramicists from the Permanent Collection
      is organized by Barry R. Harwood, Curator of Decorative Arts.

    "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"
