    • THE MENU IS DIVERSE AND THE FLAVOR IS TRULY INTERNATIONALSeptember 9, 1984 By MICHAEL BRENSON"There is an impressive diversity in this season's exhibition schedule that reflects the openness, internationalism and sense of possibility of the current art scene. It would be hard to imagine a season with more promising shows, on more kinds of art, from more corners of the world. In terms of 19th- and 20th-century painting, for example, there..."

    • UTOPIA IN THE OUTER BOROUGHSNovember 4, 1984 By Paul Goldberger"Paul Goldberger is the Pulitzer Prize- winning architecture critic of The New York Times. New Yorkers sometimes say that Middle America begins at the East River, that once you get outside Manhattan the rest of New York starts to look, if not quite like other places, a lot more ordinary, a lot more mun dane, a lot more like Trenton or Hartford or..."

    "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"
